Ethanol production in China

China is currently building or seeking approval for new ethanol plants with capacity to produce 6.6 million tonnes of the biofuel a year, Dou Kejun, a researcher at the China National Renewable Energy Centre, told an industry event in the country’s south. China had an ethanol production capacity of 2.8 Mio. t in 2017, he said.

The country last year said it would require gasoline supplies to be blended with ethanol by 2020, a move that would require about 15 Mio. t of the biofuel annually. That target is being widely watched by global biofuel markets as China is unlikely to meet its ethanol needs through domestic production.
