Nigeria’s NNPC collaborates with Chinese firms to Build Biofuels Complexes

Posted on : 03 May, 2019

Nigeria’s federal government has mandated the use of clean, alternative and renewable energy programs, particularly automotive biofuels production nationwide. This requires the blending of 10 per cent by volume of fuel-ethanol in gasoline and 20 per cent by volume of biodiesel in automotive gas oil (diesel) for use in the transportation sector.
To meet such demand, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has signed two MoUs with OBAX-COMPLANT Consortium and the CAPEGATE-NANNING Consortium to build around 10 large biofuels complexes across the country.
This will include the country’s first biofuel production complex.
Currently, Nigeria consumes over 65million litres of automotive fuel daily, indicative of a substantial volume of fuel-ethanol and biodiesel needed to meet the government mandate.
The ten large biofuels complexes across the country are expected to help meet this demand.
More about biofuels in Nigeria will be discussed at CMT’s 3rd Biomass Trade and BioEnergy Africa on 25-26 September, 2019 in Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire.
