NZ biofuels association urges biodiesel grant renewal

February 22, 2012 |

In New Zealand, the country’s bioenergy association is encouraging the government to renew the biodiesel grant scheme that is set to expire in June. The program has granted $30 million in funds since it began in 2009 leading to a five-fold increase in biofuels use during that period. The Energy and Resources Minister countered that only $2.5 million has been used due to a lack of response for the funds and that those funds could be better channel elsewhere.
