Deputy prime minister Hoang Trung Hai has called on relevant agencies and fuel traders to complete their preparations for the launch of E5 bio-fuel in major cities and provinces from early next month, chinhphu.vn reports.

According to prime ministerial Decision 53/2012/QD-TTg, E5 petrol will be made available in Hanoi, HCM City, Hai Phong, Danang, Can Tho, Quang Ngai and Ba Ria-Vung Tau from December 1 in line with a government-approved road map.

However, filling stations in Quang Ngai Province have been selling E5 RON92 since September. The bio-fuel replaces the normal Mogas 92 gasoline at all gas stations in the central coast province with more than 12,000 cubic meters already sold.

E5 petrol has also been available in Danang this month.

Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PVN) has commissioned plants with a combined annual capacity of 200,000 cubic meters of pure ethanol (E100) in the central region and the southern province of Binh Phuoc to ensure four million cubic meters of E5 petrol could be turned out.

PetroVietnam Oil Corporation (PV Oil) has got ready to sell E5 RON92 at its 276 filling stations nationwide, up by 99 over a year ago. PV Oil now has 10 bio-fuel mixing facilities with annual output of nearly 600,000 cubic meters.

Vietnam National Petroleum Group and other wholesale firms have invested in advanced bio-fuel mixing technology and facilities for distributing E5 RON92 to provinces and cities.
