China Daily - - PAGE TWO -

Biodiesel, a com­bi­na­tion of gut­ter oil and diesel, will be of­fered at 200 gas sta­tions in Shang­hai within the year, lo­cal author­i­ties said. The biodiesel is 5 per­cent pro­cessed gut­ter oil and 95 per­cent diesel. “Such biodiesel is avail­able in 21 pilot gas sta­tions in the city. More than 2,000 ve­hi­cles are us­ing the biodiesel every day,” said Xu Kun­lin, vice-mayor of Shang­hai. He said that there would be around 200 gas sta­tions across the city pro­vid­ing biodiesel this year. A to­tal of 30,000 met­ric tons of gut­ter oil, the an­nual vol­ume of gut­ter oil that Shang­hai pro­duces, will be re­cy­cled as bio­fuel.
