Japan has started selling of a new biofuel made from rice

Japan has started selling of a new biofuel made from rice, which is expected to help the resource poor country reduce its dependence on imported gasolie and make better use of deserted farmland. Niigata prefecture has begun the selling of the new biofuel, produced from domestically-grown brown rice and blended with gasolien at a ratio of up to three percent, the Mainichi Daily News newspaper reported Saturday. According to Japan’s National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations Zennoh (JA Zennoh), the bioethanol “is equivalent to regular gasoline both in quality and mileage, and will be available in a similar price range”.
