Thai Government to Use Ethanol in Cars

A recent report by the National Ethanol Committe(NEC) said that the Thai government plans to begin using ethanol as an alternative fuel for local vehicles by 2002.

The committee decided to push for the use of ethanol, said NEC chairman Alongkorn Polabutrm. He also said that a master plan of action would be developed soon.

Biodiesel Production Subsidized

Companies that make ethanol, biodiesel and other fuels from farm products will be offered direct government subsidies to buy crops such as corn and soybeans.

Payments will be capped at $7.5 million per company, under the two-year program announced Tuesday by the Agriculture Department. The subsidies will range from 29 percent to 40 percent of the cost of the crops, depending on the size of the company.

``This program will help us tap into a huge domestic energy reserve, our family farmers,'' said Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman. ``Encouraging the use of bioenergy benefits America's farmers, while improving our energy security and helping to protect the environment.''
