Land clearance in Vietnam

It’s the sort of news that probably gets bio-ethanol a bad reputation. reported on Monday that 24 hectares of land in Vietnam are to be cleared in order to build a bio-ethanol plant.

Now, obviously a bio-ethanol plant has to go someone, and this one will be making other by-products as well.  But clearing land to build one opens up the discussion about what else the land could have been used for (eg. food production).

Why not “regenerate” a disused factory site instead?
