Not more fuel from food

The Environment Committee of the EU parliament voted with a large margin to limit the fraction of fuels made from food crops to 5.5%. This stimulates the development of 2nd generation biofuels. Also emissions from indirect land use change have to be accounted for in the emissions impact – this is stated not to be fully mature – but it is a step in the right direction. The author’s personal opinion is that 1st generation biofuels are probably pretty marginal in terms of their CO2 footprint contribution.
