Excerpts: "It can be recalled that the previous provincial administration launched what could be a "major project which will see Bohol province putting aside 10,000 hectares for jatropha plantation with a P25 million funding from the Philippine National Oil CompanyAlternative Fuels Corporation." "Aumentado also launched the bioethanol project by signing a memorandum of understanding with South Korea's Dr. Gyungsoo Kim, inventor of the ethanol extraction process, whose company, Biolsystems Co., Ltd., aimed to establish a $100 million ethanol extraction facility in Talibon town." "However, due to protests of affected seaweed farmers in Talibon and neighboring towns, the project was stalled." "Utilizing idle lands, Bohol is one of the provinces or places being groomed as source of jatropha to be the raw materials for biofuel. The other places are Cagayan de Oro, Nueva Ecija, Negros, Siquijor and Quezon."

Excerpt : "The province is embarking into biofuel production projects that will not only reduce air pollution but reforest denuded and unproductive forestlands and provide jobs and livelihood opportunities for Boholanos. Targeted are the jatropha plantation for the biofuel additive to diesel and red algae plantation for aquaculture sites all over Bohol's coastline for bioethanol, which is an additive to gasoline. Governor Erico Aumentado expects Bohol to become the country's biofuel capital once these two projects are in full swing."
