India to Test Ethanol Blends Soon

India's minister for petroleum and natural gas Ram Naik recently announced that the country will soon launch pilot projects to test the feasibility of blending ethanol with gasoline. Naik said the projects will be launched in three districts of the Maharashtra by the end of the year.

The government has already issued tenders for the supply of ethanol to the three projects, which will be located in the districts of Sangli, Satara and Kolhapur. In addition, Naik noted that the government is considering tax concessions for ethanol.

Currently, the Indian government only allows the use of five percent ethanol in gasoline. Naik said the pilot projects will be based on this proportion because any increase in the amount of ethanol would require an amendment in specifications, which can be a lengthy process.

ADM Announces New Mission

The Archer Daniels Midland Co. has announced a new mission statement that Chairman G. Allen Andreas said "will guide everything we do at ADM."

The statement, "To unlock the potential of nature to improve the quality of life," was unveiled during ADM's annual shareholders meeting, held at the James R. Randall Center in Decatur. Based on a set of seven core beliefs detailed by Mr. Andreas during his address to the audience, the mission statement included a commitment by ADM to "make the world a better place by applying advancements in research and technology to agriculture."

According to the company, the mission is based on ADM's long heritage of developing new products based on agricultural products. Among ADM's products are animal feeds, food ingredients like vegetable oil and corn syrup, renewable automobile fuel ethanol and a new line of nutraceutical products that provide specific health benefits.
