Dung Quat Bio-Ethanol Plant located in the Dung Quat Industrial Zone in the central province of Quang Ngai on Feb. 3 turned out the first batch of product after 33 months of construction and trial operation.

With four workshops, the 2-trillion VND plant has a designed capacity of 100 million litres of ethanol annually.

The plant is scheduled to run at full capacity after one month of operation.

The plant is expected to meet domestic demands for bio-petrol, contributing to saving fuels and reducing environmental pollution while offering jobs to 240 workers and helping local farmers raise their income.

The plant is scheduled to be handed over to the investor – the Central Petroleum Bio-ethanol Joint Stock Company - on the 37 th liberation anniversary of Quang Ngai province (March 24)./.
