Green Future Innovations (GFII) will build a PHP6bn ($140m) bioethanol plant in Isabela, the Philippines.

The project will generate 54 million litres of bio-ethanol and produce 19MW of energy every year.

The plant will grow sugarcane in 110km² of idle and underdeveloped land for use as feedstock.

Of the total cultivated land, 90km² will be contract grown and 20km² will be looked after by the GFII's corporate farm.

The plant is expected to be operational by the second quarter of 2012.
