November 10, 2021 – The Department of Science and Technology Region 02 (DOST R02), through the Provincial Science and Technology Center (PSTC) Nueva Vizcaya, officially launched the development of a novel processing facility for ethyl alcohol in the province.

This project was established by the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU), led by Dr. Lori Shyane A. Busa. The facility is currently placed in the premises of the campus. DOST 02 has also provided about 1M pesos for the funding of the phase two of this project.
The facility was established for the production of a locally-made ethyl alcohol, made from the conversion of agricultural products such as corn and rice. It was also established to address the need of ethyl alcohol supplies in the hospitals and universities in the province.
Aside from that, DOST R02 and NVSU aims to encourage scientists and chemists in the region to participate in alcohol production. As DOST Undersecretary for Research and Development, Dr. Rowena Guevara mentioned, “This can be a benchmark for scientists, researchers, and chemical engineers in Higher Education Institutes and SUCs for learning industrial-type processes and operations.”
Key officials in the province and the department were also present, such as Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos M. Padilla, NVSU Officer-in-charge of the Office of the President Hon. Ruth Raña-Padilla, and DOST Undersecretary for Regional Operations Engr. Sancho A. Mabborang. (𝘚&𝘛 𝘗𝘌𝘕 02_𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘻 𝘔𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘯)
