Abstract

The bioethanol demand in the Philippines does not correspond with the available supply for the E10 and E20 requirements of the Philippine Biofuels Act. This paper aims to introduce Nypa fruitican as an additional bioethanol feedstock for the country. In Pamplona alone, more than 1000 ha of nipa stands can produce an additional 720,000–1,008,000 liters of bioethanol if 30% of these naturally grown nipa stands are tapped for bioethanol production based on 5–7% alcohol yield. In the Philippines, there are 8000 ha of reported nipa stands. In the Pamplona experience, more than 100,000 liters of sap were collected and processed as hydrous nipa bioethanol by four community partners in three different barangays using the Mariano Marcos State University village-scale reflux distillation facility and technologies. The hydrous ethanol produced in Pamplona was dehydrated in the distillation facility of Far East Alcohol Corporation on August 22, 2019, and marks the first nipa bioethanol distillation in the Philippines, suggesting that nipa is a technically viable feedstock despite the challenges encountered during this experience.
