South Korea is seeing a drive to produce more biodiesel, with the government
pledging its support to rapeseed cultivation for biofuel
The government has announced plans for three new 500-hectare farms to produce
2.4mt of rapeseed to be completed by 2009, the Ministry of Agriculture and
Forestry said on Wednesday.
A total of 2.6bn Won (€2.1m) is being
invested in the project and the aim is to achieve a 5% ethanol blend in fuel
once enough can be domestically produced.
Currently South Korean biodiesel
contains just 0.5% ethanol.
