Chinese in Brazil to See How Alcohol Fuel is Made

    A Chinese mission will arrive in Brazil on Monday, April 11, to see the production of ethanol, alcohol extracted from the sugar cane and used as fuel.

    According to information from Brazil’s Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, the Chinese, lead by the engineer Sun Xiaocang, want to learn about the process for production of alcohol fuel, how the plants work, the existing distribution structure and the rules applied to the sector.


    According to the ministry, the visit will take place within the scope of a memorandum of understanding that was signed by the governments of the two countries and foresees the exchange of technical information, with the aim of promoting investments and bilateral trade in the sector.


    With the Kyoto Protocol taking effect this year, obliging the reduction in emission of pollutants in an international scale, Brazil, which already is the greatest alcohol fuel producer and exporter, expects to increase exports substantially.


    Some countries, as is the case with Japan, have already authorised the mixture of alcohol in gasoline to decrease the emission of harmful gases.
