Brazil increases biodiesel target to 5% by 2010 on rising production potential

State news agency Agencia Brasil announces that the country’s biodiesel production capacity will surpass the 1.3 billion liter per year mark by the middle of this year. This is around 60% above the total needed to reach a target put forward earlier by the government. This target – falling under the country’s new ‘Pro-biodiesel program’ – aims to replace 2% of all fossil diesel with biodiesel, by 2013. According to Arnoldo de Campos, the coordinator of the National Program for Biodiesel Production and Use, the increased capacity means the deadline can be brought forward by three years, to 2010, and the target increased to 5%.
