Decision 177/2007/QD-TTg Approving the Scheme on Development of Biofuels up to 2015, with a Vision to 2025
The Decision also encourages research and development in the field and the 'mastery' and development of the relevant technologies. Specific activities to achieve this include technology transfer and sending scientific and technological personnel to countries with a developed biofuel production industry for professional training of 6-12 months. The final elements of the Decision refer to the institutional issues and assigns responsibilities for specific tasks involved in implementation and organisation to Ministries.
The decision includes the target that by 2010, Vietnam will develop various models of trial production, specifically 100,000 tonnes of E5 and 50,000 tonnes of B5. By 2015 the output of ethanol and vegetable oils will reach 250,000 tonnes. The vision to 2025 is to have achieved advanced level technology in the sector and for ethanol and vegetable output to reach 1.8m tonnes, c. 5% of gasoline and oil demand (unspecified whether current demand or projected level of demand).
To build and develop biofuel production and using estabishments nationwide. By 2015, the output of ethanol and vegetable oil will reach 250,000 tons (enough for blending 5 million tons of E5 and B5), satisfying 1% of the whole country's gasoline and oil demand
By 2010, to develop various models of trial production and use of biofuels with a total annual output of 100,000 tons of E5 and 50,000 tons of B5 in order to satisfy 0.4% of the whole country's gasoline and oil demand
Ethanol and vegetable oil output will reach 1.8 million tons, satisfying some 5% of the whole country's gasoline and oil demand by 2025
