Production of biofuels as a means to for energy security




By Alina Archudia Ramírez

 

Mexico, Jan (Notimex).- It is about time Mexico starts producing biofuels, such as ethanol, as it is the most economical and safe production compared to gasoline and diesel.

 

Experts agree that the eventual development of this industry would greatly contribute to the country's energy security.

 

Mexico has three million hectares with potential for energy crops.

 

If a program were to start, five years from now it would reach a production of 15 million liters of ethanol per day, equivalent to 10 percent of the current demand for gasoline.
