The National Innovation Agency (NIA) joined hands with Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) to support the first pilot plant for ethanol production from cassava pulp in Thailand. 

The two parties yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding for a 276-million-baht grant that supports the development of renewable energy innovation and technology.

NIA will facilitate the implementation of the plant to be constructed with Thai co-investment. NEDO will provide 690 million yen (276 million baht) fund for the project from 2013-2016 for all machinery and equipment at the plant, which will have a production capacity of 800 litres per batch.
