Ministry prepares Lao biodiesel brand for Asean market

Vientiane Times, June 4, 2012

The Ministry of Energy and Mines’ Institute of Renewable Energy Promotion expects to have a Lao brand name biodiesel available soon and envisages exporting to the Asean market by 2025. “We feel sure that this is possible because we are making biodiesel from the fruits of both jatropha and oil palm,” the institute’s Director General, Mr Hatsady Sysoulath, said when addressing a seminar on renewable energy development last week.  “We will have our own standard biodiesel made of jatropha and this standard must be acknowledged in Asean,” Mr Hatsady said. “This will ensure we won’t face any problems when we start supplying the Asean market. This means we have to act in line with Asean regulations.”
