Question: Which countries use beets to produce ethanol?
Answer: In 2007 the first sugar beet ethanol production plant was opened in the UK in England. The United States has a few such plants located in Pennsylvania and North Dakota among other states. Plans were underway in 2008 to build a plant on Price Edward Island in Canada although it’s unclear what the ultimate result was as the location was under debate at the time. Turkey has conducted research into sugar beet ethanol although it remains only a research project. Brazil is another country currently producing ethanol from beets among other South American countries. Unfortunately I couldn’t determine which other South American countries are using it, just that “some” are. The same can be said of the European Union. Multiple EU members are stated to produce ethanol from beets but other than England it’s unclear which member countries those are.
