It is the first time the government has set a targeted timeline for pushing the biofuel, known as E10 and containing 10 per cent corn, across the world’s largest car market.A renewed effort to promote biofuels will be a further blow to major oil producers. The government said on Saturday it had begun studying when to ban the production and sale of cars using traditional fuels.

The news comes after the government said it would aim to double ethanol output by 2020 amid growing pressure to whittle down mountains of ageing corn in state warehouses.The report on Wednesday said the government also aims to have large-scale domestic production of cellulosic biofuels, which are made from sources such as grasses, trees and crop waste, by 2025.China is the world’s third-largest ethanol producer, but with output of about 2.1 million tonnes a year, production is a long way behind global leaders Brazil and the United States.

That's the way to go about...

Every liter of bio-fuel is one liter less imported and the production is creating jobs on top of it.

Needless to mention, better air relates to healthier and happier people:handshake
