Zimbabwe reduces mandatory petrol blending to 5% percent due to low sugar cane supply

The government has reduced the percentage in blended petrol from 15 percent to 5 percent due to the low supply of sugar cane.

In an announcement Minister of Energy and Power Development Samuel Undenge said:

The blending of ethanol and unleaded petrol at E15 is now unsustainable because there is now an inadequate supply of ethanol, to sustain blending at 15 per centum level.

The consequence of this approval is that all licensee operators shall, from the date of publication of this notice, be mandated to sell unleaded petrol which is blended at five per centum,

The E-15 blended fuel ranges from $1.35 to $1, 39 on the local market, a price which is much higher than regional prices.
