Brazilian president proposes biofuel to help reduce African poverty

Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva Wednesday proposed that a minimum usage of biofuels be applied in Africa to aid the continent’s economic development.

He said the plan should be added to the United Nation’s millennium development goals.
Biofuels could generate income and employment in Africa when rich nations begin to use them, he said.

“There should be a goal of 20 percent ethanol or biodiesel in every tank for 2015 or 2020,” said the president.

“Africa’s problem is that it has a lot to say, but with little money. That is why I am a fan of the biofuel program, so that when the rich world starts introducing biofuels, it can generate jobs and income in Africa,” he said.
