The reduction of the blend in Brazil will reduce the monthly demand for anhydrous ethanol in the domestic market at about 150 million liters, which in practice should increase the availability of hydrated ethanol in equal volume. This is the opinion of Unica, in a statement released on Tuesday (30 / 8).
For them, much time was spent in discussion and wheter the mixture does or does not alter significantly the supply of ethanol, meanwhile most important stuff, connected to the supply growth and the future of the industry, only begang to receive attention now.\”We must clearly define the participation of hydrated ethanol fuel in the matrix of the country. In parallel, measures that enhance the energy from biomass are also essential. With this, we begin to see conditions for a resumption of growth, similar to what occurred between 2004 and 2008, when about 120 new plants have been deployed in the country. The sector has shown he can play that role, \”said Marcos Jank, president of the organization.
