Ethanol fuel to be standardized

As the campaign for clean energy solution continue to take deep roots in Uganda, the Uganda National Bureau of Standards has embarked on a process to develop standards for production of ethanol a home cooking and appliance fuel.

This comes at the time when the world is moving towards reduction of carbon emission as a way of protecting environment.

Now speaking during awareness workshop on ethanol, the Uganda National Bureau of Standards deputy executive director Patricia Ejaru said that they are in process of adopting revised standard developed by American society for testing and material.

She explained that many companies are producing ethanol in large quantities especially agro-processing companies, making it more accessible, yet it does not emit carbon.

If fully standardized, Ugandan will be able to access ethanol on open market.
