Philippines Sugar Regulatory Administration wants to use excess to make biofuel

The Philippines Sguar Regulatory Administration is working on a plan to connect biofuel producers with sugar mills and planters in the country to use up excess sugar. The plan is scheduled to be implemented in the first half of next year.

I think that this is an excellent principle, to use sugar (which offers sweetness and calories and little else, as far as I can see) to make biofuel. It probably fits quite well with the Philippines’ bioethanol policy. I’m less happy if its being used as a price support process. Hopefuly there’ll be some flexibility in the system.
