The Managing Director of KSC, Mohamed El Mardi El-Tijani, said in a press statement that biofuels do not require adjustments for car engines, adding that their cost is much lower than gasoline.

The project which will mix gasoline with 10% of ethanol is a joint venture between KSC and the Greater Nile Petroleum Operating Company (GNPOC).

El-Tijani, pointed out that biofuels produced from mixing ethanol and gasoline has become a pressing global need, saying that its use in the European Union (EU) will most likely become binding within a year, adding that it has a positive impact on car engine and its efficiency.

Sudan currently produces 65 million litres of ethanol, 10% of production consumed in the local market for making paints and detergents.

In 2009, Sudan inaugurated its first ethanol plant in Kenana, about 250 km south of Khartoum, where is located the main sugar factory in the country.

The project of ethanol is a joint effort between the ministry of Energy, KSC and Giad Company. The Brazilian Brazil’s Dedini Industrias de Base constructed the plant.
