UK Sees Need For Global Biofuel Standards, Protections

Date : 20th September 2007, Source : ENN



OXFORD (Reuters) - Global standards must be developed to ensure the growth in the use of biofuels does not have damaging consequences for the environment, Britain's Climate Change Minister Phil Woolas said on Thursday. "The global community must as a matter of urgency work towards the development of internationally recognized standards for biomass grown to produce biofuels," he told a conference organized by Britain's Renewable Energy Association. Woolas said several studies had pointed to the dangers of deforestation and rising food prices "if we increase in the wrong way the production of energy."
