China Plans New Crops For Biofuel Project

The Chinese government is planning to mass cultivate sugarcane, sweet sorghum, cassava and rape to provide feedstock for biofuels projects.

Under its newly announced agricultural Biofuel Industry Plan, the government wants to reduce the use of ethanol and food grains for ethanol production. There have been growing complaints that the use of food crops for fuel production has led to food inflation.
If the plan is fully realized, China expects to produce 500 million metric tons of coal equivalent of bioenergy from non-grain crops.
