Biofuels Bubble Turns to Bust


Biofuels Bubble Turns to Bust

Friends of the Earth International

BRUSSELS / AMSTERDAM / JAKARTA - Today, the European Parliament agreed new EU laws to limit the use of crop-based biofuels.

EU law makers ruled that biofuels can compete with food production, contribute to climate change, and put pressure on land use – and so have set a limit on the quantity of biofuels that can be used to meet EU energy targets (at no more than 7% of transport energy).[1]
