Caltex Australia Launches Ethanol Based-Biofuel Bio E-Flex

Caltex Australia has launched its Bio E-Flex, a new biofuel with high ethanol content, for usage in VE Series II Commodore flex-fuel vehicles of Holden meant for a late 2010 release. The Bio E-Flex biofuel comprises 15% petrol and 85% ethanol while helping to reduce the overall greenhouse gas emissions and the dependence on conventional fossil fuels.

Bio E-Flex represents Caltex Australia’s strategy in providing transport fuels that go beyond the conventional fuel mix while reflecting the company’s commitment towards energy security and climate change. The Bio E-Flex is a resultant of the partnership with Holden and will be the recommended fuel for the latter’s new range of flex-fuel vehicles.

Since the Bio E-Flex biofuel will be suitable only for flex-fuel vehicles, Caltex Australia is anticipated to start sales by September this year in tune with Holden’s vehicle releases. The entire scenario will mark an important step towards developing Victoria’s biofuel industry in Australia.
