MUNICH (ICIS)--The Philippines’ Universal Robina is expected to start ethanol production in the first half of 2014, according to a source close to the matter on Tuesday.

“Initially, the company expects its plant to come on line by March [2014] but that’s a bit too ambitious as it hasn’t even started trial runs yet,” added the source.

The facility, located at Manjuyod in Negros Oriental, can produce 30m litres of ethanol per year and would be using molasses as feedstock.
