Bio-ethanol plant rolls out first batch of product
The PCB plant was completed in March 2012 and uses raw sliced cassava to produce ethanol.
Its output is 100,000 cubic meters a year, 5 percent of which is for the domestic market and the rest for exports, mainly to the Philippines.
Ethanol is used to produce the biofuel E5, which is used in internal combustion engines such as motorcycles and cars.
