Strategy for Biofuels (1/2) 1.Basic Policy to Introduce Biofuels • Tasks for introducing biofuels (bio-ETBE, bio-ethanol) • - Stable supply and sustainability (To be of bio-origin and prevent negative impacts on food security, environment and biodiversity) • - Economics (Price is higher than gasoline on an energy-equivalent basis and highly volatile due to dependence on sugar price) • - Product quality (To secure safety of cars and prevent air pollution) • (2) Policy • - Blend Bio-ETBE, not Bio-Ethanol directly, into automotive gasoline to bear product liability giving first priority to consumers’ safety and security, and product quality assurance • (3) Target of introducing Biofuels • - Biofuels used in 2010 ⇒ 210 MML/y (C.o.e.) 360 MML/y (Ethanol equivalent) 840 MML/y (ETBE equivalent) = =
Strategy for Biofuels (2/2) 2. Introduction schedule (1) Original schedule2007.4 - Test marketing of Bio gasoline at 50 gas stations in the Tokyo metropolitan area. (12MML/y of Bio-ETBE) 2008.4 - Test marketing of Bio gasoline at 100 gas stations in the areas expanded to Kansai and Tohoku region (16MML/y of Bio-ETBE) 2009 FY - Blend 200MML/y of Bio-ETBE into automotive gasoline 2010 FY - Blend 840MML/y of Bio-ETBE into automotive gasoline (2) Additional introduction- Now under discussion on the feasibility of introducing additional volume of biofuels Maximum target volume : 500 MML/y (C.o.e.) = 860 MML/y (Ethanol equivalent) = 2,000 MML/y (ETBE equivalent) - The stable supply of energy is very important for Japan due to limited domestic resources. Japan is aiming to produce bio-ethanol domestically without competition with food and starting research and development to produce secondgeneration biofuels (cellulose-based feedstock, mostly grass/wood-based) at lower cost.

Requirements for the Bio-Ethanol in ETBE used in Japan • Stable supply( Stable supply is very important for Japan ) • 2. Sustainability including food security • (1) Feedstock of ethanol should not compete with food • - Utilize feedstock that should not cause food price hike or shortage of food • (2) Contribute to GHG reduction - Ensure highly positive GHG balance of ethanol over their life cycle (sugar cane fields, production at ethanol mills, transportation, utilization) • (3) Protect environment and biodiversity - No conversion of high carbon density lands and high biodiversity lands • (4) Ensure decent working conditions • 3. Traceability • We recommend Brazil to set up a governmental certification system because it’s difficult to trace when ethanol is mingled in terminal tanks or pipelines • (1) The government issues the certification of bio-origin for the exporting ethanol. • (2) The ethanol factories or suppliers that secure sustainable production can get the certification of sustainability from the government
