Misplaced Food v Fuel Fears – Germany May Unnecessarily Restrict Crop-based Biofuels

In response to food vs. fuel concerns, Germany intends to limit crop-based biofuels. The following article was first published by Fastmarkets in their Energy Census [RE]fuel Report: The main takeaway from this is that politicians and the general public alike both assume that most biogas is made from crops which would otherwise become food. This […]
