Mexican State Propose Bio-Jet Plant for 2012

MEXICO - Chiapas state government will propose to build a bio-jet fuel production plant in January 2012.

Should the plans be granted approval, the plant would help Mexican airlines achieve their blending targets for aviation fuel; in 2015 the government wants 1 per cent of renewable jet fuel to be blended with traditional aviation fuel. This will increase to 15 per cent by 2020.

The plant is estimated to cost between $40 and $80 (€30-59 million) to construct, depending on how much fuel it will need to produce to meet demand.

The government could break ground on the facility by mid-2012, with construction expected to take 12 months.
