Renewable Energy - Other

I am from Indonesia, where in me and my friends are involved in the production of Bioethanol, as kerosene, from cassava.

Answer:

Almost every Indonesia villager uses kerosene for cooking. But, we are short of kerosene, and even Indonesian Government has removed subsidy from kerosene and is giving more preference to liquid petroleum gas (LPG)

As a result, owing to high price of kerosene and lack of LPG distribution, villagers are now going back to the primitive ways of using wood to cook.

Our target is to produce bioethanol, and also provide Bioethanol stove, as a model, and share the knowledge with others, but our technology is still not effective and efficient, so, we need assistance to produce Bioethanol in an effective and efficient way. I discussed this problem in Friend of the Earth Discussion Forum, and they suggested us to contact your organization.
Bioethanol

Thanks for contacting us. Unfortunately, we don’t have any expertise in bio-ethanol. We are working on Bio-diesel and are focusing only on “non edible” varieties. i.e. Jetropa, Neem, caster etc…
However, we can give you few e-mail addresses of resource persons working on bio-ethanol and bio diesel and related applications. It will help you to get in touch with them directly:
