The plan will “support the use of ethanol fuel throughout the country by 2020” while strengthening the capacity of the biofuel industry, according to a document from the National Development and Reform Commission and the energy administration. At the moment, biofuels account for just one percent of the total petroleum products consumed in China, the world’s largest automobile market.
