The article focuses on the selection of China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region for a project to build facilities to produce cassava-based ethanol fuel for cars. Existing industrial distilleries will be used to avoid building new plants, said Pan Wenfeng, an official at the Regional Development and Reform Commission. It is hoped that Guangxi's fuel stations would be able to offer the cleaner fuel by 2007.
