The Biofuels Association of Zambia (BAZ) will this year enhance public awareness programmes on biofuel. BAZ chairperson Thomson Sinkala said in an interview that the organisation would increase public awareness activities because they were a participatory industry and wanted to avail more information to the public. Professor Sinkala said BAZ would also continue to dialogue with Government on the need to announce blending ratios so that the industry could get into action. "I believe there will be upstream, mainstream and downstream industrial activities. For some feedstock, each hectare can earn between US$6'000 and $15'000 or more", Prof Sinkala said. He said this meant that if the country used a million hectares on such feedstock, there would be earnings of between $6 billion and $15 billion or more per annum.
