Nine new biofuel plants should come online in Colombia before the end of 2011, the presidential press office said in a statement, according to BNamericas. The new facilities include one biodiesel plant and eight new ethanol plants. Five biofuel plants began operations between 2008 and 2009, the statement said. Total production of biofuels should reach 486'000 tons per year in the country by the end of 2011, according to the statement. Colombia's state oil company, Ecopetrol, is leading the biofuel push in Colombia and in 2008 purchased an 80 percent stake in a biofuel joint venture. The company is set to open an ethanol plant on an 11'000 hectare area in the eastern Llanos Basin.
