KAP State leader Rob Katter will welcome in the New Year with a full tank of E10.
January first marks the beginning of the Queensland Biofuel mandate, an agenda heavily pursued by the KAP.
“From the start we committed to using our powers in this hung parliament to grow our industries – Ethanol was one of the priorities,” Mr Katter said.
“Setting a mandate for the sale of this fuel won’t just benefit our growers and the biofuels industry, it also means cleaner air in built up areas.
“It’s a win-win for both the country and the city,” he said.
The Mount Isa MP along with colleague Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth had successfully negotiated a higher mandate during the passage of the Liquid Fuel Supply (Ethanol and Other Biofuels Mandate) Amendment Act 2015.
As a long-time advocate agricultural industries KAP have pushed the mandate further to ensure there is a continued incentive to invest and grow the sector.
“We want to see this mandate eventually drive our producers to capacity,” Mr Katter said.
“Everyone’s new year’s resolution should be to support Queensland by giving E10 a go,” he said.
