British Petroleum (BP) is helping Australia meet its target of 350 million liters (92 million gallons) of renewable fuels in the nation's fuel supply by 2010. BP has signed an agreement to purchase 23 million liters (6 million gallons) of ethanol from CSR Ltd.'s molasses-based Sarina, Queensland, facility. BP also agreed to purchase 80 million liters (21 million gallons) of ethanol from Primary Energy's proposed Kwinana, Western Australia, plant, which will use wheat as a feedstock. BP will distribute E10 blends throughout the country.
