First batch of bio-ethanol produced at Dung Quat plant

Dung Quat bio-ethanol plant in the central province of Quang Ngai announced on Feb. 3 that it had successfully produced its first batch of bio-ethanol with 99.7 per cent alcohol, since its test run on January 16.

During the trial run, the plant operated at 80 per cent of its standard capacity. The plant is designed with the purpose of producing an annual output of 100 million litres of E5, a common ethanol fuel mixture, said Ho Sy Long, the plant’s director.

In addition to bio-fuels, the plant will also produce carbon dioxide, animal feed and fertilisers.

Since early 2012, engineers and labourers at the plant have been working round-the-clock to ensure that the plant can produce its first batch of bio-ethanol as scheduled.

The Dung Quat bio-ethanol plant was constructed at the Dung Quat Economic Zone in 2004 with a total investment of over VND2,000 billion (US$98.88 million). A total of 11,000 hectares of land had been cleared away and the plant is scheduled to be fully operational by May this year.
