Mozambique outlines big bioufels push

Mozambique has outlined a big biofuel push into ethanol and biodiesl from jatropha. According to Planet Ark.

Eugenio Silva, a senior PETROMOC official, said it would create about 800 jobs and lead to a maximum annual production of 226 million litres of ethanol and bio-diesel seven years after start-up.

PETROMOC intendsto get funding for the project from international donors and investors, according to the report.

The company inaugurated biodiesel production in Matola, on 22 August.

I think that the Mozambique government should insist that donors and investors have the use aid is put to audited as part of their conditions of accepting it. That is not to say that anyone involved is or would be corrupt, but it would give the organisations that fund the donors confidence that the money would go to the right place.
