SAO PAULO (ICIS)--Dutch-based Argos is developing a new 15% ethanol blend that it plans to market to the Netherlands and to Asia, an executive said on Friday.

Onofre Andrade, manager of sustainability in biofuels at Argos said the company is developing a new product called Blue One 95, which contains a 15% hydrous ethanol blend. 

He made his comments during the Ethanol Summit 2013 in Sao Paulo.

"Brazil is major producer of hydrous ethanol, and this is a fuel that is very used in our flex fuel car fleet. This is a new market we're opening, and Brazilian ethanol producers will be able to export more hydrous ethanol," he said.
