The ears have it: Chinese government encouraging ethanol use in motor vehicles

China’s government is encouraging the use of a cleaner, higher-octane additive and alternative to gasoline—ethanol—according to an official with China’s State Development Planning Commission (SDPC).

The SDPC official said ethanol expected to eventually account for 25 to 30 percent of the domestic gas market, reported Zhongyang Dianshitai (China Central Television) on April 16.

The ethanol application will be carried out on an experimental basis. Renovated ethanol manufacturing plants in Henan and Heilongjiang provinces have already started operation, while the preparation work for the construction of a new plant in the Jilin province has begun.

Liu Tienan, director of the SDPC’s Industry Development Department, said April 15 that the price of ethanol would be the same as the same grade of unleaded gas, so using ethanol would not result in extra spending for consumers.

According to a theoretical prediction of China’s existing gas-consumption volume, adding 10 percent alcohol to gas will save 4 million tons of gas each year, which in turn would save the country US$1.5 billion, the report said.
