Agriculture and small to medium scale industries in peri-urban areas through ethanol production for transport in china

Objective

According to an analysis of the existing and future demand in gasoline in China's transportation sector, and the necessary request in oxygenated additives (MTBE, ethanol) in order to replace lead as octane booster, this proposal aims to give answers to the following question : How to produce and use bio ethanol, in a sustainable way with a mutual benefit between rural and urban people? This analysis based upon two case studies in Leaning and Ganglia Provinces. This sustainability will be studied in terms of economy (micro and macro) , environmental impacts, and social impacts (competition between food, feed and fuel, land use, job creation in rural areas...) . Finally, the proposed scenarios will be discussed with a group of regional stakeholders in order to test their acceptability, to implement them in the two provinces and to envisage their feasibility in other Asian areas .
