BP to sell biobutanol blend fuel in the UK this year

As reported earlier, BP and DuPont formed a partnership to develop biobutanol as a transport fuel. DuPont are now publicising the fact that biobutanol will make its debut later this year in the United Kingdom. BP will distribute and market biobutanol mixed with petrol in a mixture that DuPont believes is likely to be around 16 percent biobutanol and 84 percent petrol.

Where DuPont will take biobutanol after the United Kingdom is the subject of discussion inside the company. If the UK introduction of the fuel goes well, biobutanol will be of great interest to countries that import a significant amount of petroleum, but have multiple crops that can be converted to biobutanol.
