Government reports ethanol production fell by 32% in 2020, but YPFB defaulted on purchase target

The production of anhydrous alcohol, the additive is mixed with superior gasoline, fell by 32% in 2020, a year marked by the stoppage of activities resulting from the pandemic. However, the sugar cane sector, which supplies the raw material, points out that the production of anhydrous alcohol did not fall, but rather that there was a failure by Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) to withdraw the agreed volumes.
