$120m ethanol plant operation postponed in Philippines

Green Future Innovations Inc. of Japan has decided to postpone the commissioning of a $120m ethanol and cogeneration facility in the Philippines to June after last year’s typhoons affected the plant’s construction.

Green Future, led by Itochu Corp. and Japan Gas Corp., said construction of the facility incurred slight delay on account of bad weather last year, although the plant was already 99 per cent complete.

The company had targeted the commissioning of the ethanol plant at the Isabela Ecofuel Agro-Industrial Ecozone in the first quarter of this year, reports Manila Standard Today.

The plant will generate 19 MW of renewable power, 13 MW of which will be delivered to the national grid.

Remember to bookmark POWER-GEN Asia conference which takes place in Bangkok, Thailand from 3-5 October.
