Francisco Bas, general manager of AAE, inaugurates the first petrol station to provide bioethanol in Andalusia

April 1, 2008

Seville, April 1, 2008.- Francisco Bas, general manager of Andalusian Energy Agency (AAE), has inaugurated the first petrol station to provide bioethanol in Andalusia with the support of Abengoa Bioenergy. This marks an important step forward in the use of this fuel.

The petrol station Los Angeles, located on Dos Hermanas, in the road that joins Utrera with Seville at the kilometer 2.9, will commercialize with petrol blended with bioethanol at various percentages: 5% bioethanol (e5), 10% bioethanol (e10) and 85% bioethanol (e85). The new petrol pumps which have been financed at 50 per cent by Abengoa Bioenergy, have been provided with automatic devices which allow choosing the blend required when filling-up the vehicle.

The service station received its first lot of bioethanol from Abengoa Bioenergy´s production plant Ecocarburantes Españoles, located in Cartagena (Murcia) last Friday, 28th of March and a supply agreement has been signed for 5 years.

This service station is now the fourth in Spain to supply e85. Abengoa Bioenergy is at present collaborating in various projects to improve the infrastructures needed for the distribution of biofuels in Spain.

E85 can be used in Fuel Flexible Vehicles (FFV) which allow for any type of bioethanol blend between 0 and 85%.

Abengoa Bioenergy is leader in bioethanol production in Europe (with a production capacity of 595 million liters) and one of the major producers in the United States (750 million liters) and Brazil (130 million litres), giving a total installed production capacity of 1,475 million liters.

Abengoa is a technological company that applies innovative solutions for sustainable development in the infrastructures, environment and energy sectors. It is a listed company with treasury stock of 2,049.14 million euro (31/03/08) and is present in more than seventy countries where it operates with its five business units: Solar, Bioenergy, Environmental Services, Information Technologies, and Industrial Engineering and Construction.
