EU biofuels more beneficial to big industry than environment

In the EU, the biofuels industry serves to enrich the large industrial groups more than the environment, according to a recent study published by the International Journal of Environment and Health. Because of the emphasis placed on first-generation biofuels in the EU’s policies, Simone Vierri of the University “La Sapienza” of Rome argues that the inputs for a 10% blend by 2020 will be unsustainable using corn, soy, and sugarcane – this will force many countries to import a great deal of their raw materials.  Instead, Vieri insists that policy aimed at promoting advanced biofuels made from biomass and waste would be much more beneficial for the environment.
