Japan sees ethanol imports growing with economy

Japan, Asia's largest ethanol user, is likely to gradually increase alcohol imports as it recovers from economic recession, a director at alcohol producer Nedo Alcohol said on Friday.

"Demand is expected to increase and this will mean extra imports," Yoshio Takagi told Reuters at the F.O. Licht world ethanol conference.

Takagi said the latest available data showed that due to recession imports of fermentation ethanol fell to 347 million litres in 1998 from 431 million in 1997.

The main suppliers were the United States, Brazil and Thailand while there were also imports from Australia, New Zealand, China and Indonesia.

White House Fact Sheet on Global Warming

In an address broadcast over the Internet, President Clinton announced the completion of the first comprehensive assessment of the potential impacts of climate change across the United States, and will call for a comprehensive new clean air strategy that can significantly reduce emissions from U.S. power plants that contribute to global warming. On the eve of international climate change negotiations, the President also will reaffirm the U.S. commitment to work with other nations to ensure a strong, cost-effective agreement to fight global warming.
