The Dominican Republic has decided to start working on its plans to develop a biofuel industry. The Dominican government has decided to promote sugarcane crops so as the country can reach a target of 150 million gallons of ethanol per year, 60 million of those for export.
The plan also aims for investing in technology which can re-use byproducts such as bagasses even if only as biomass (burned) for producing electricity. The country's plans, as with all biofuel projects, is to reduce its external dependence on oil, recover the economy in rural communities and improve exports.

Biodiesel plans are also quite ambitious: 140 million gallons per year, which would be 40 percent of the country's diesel needs.
