Vivergo Fuels says UK’s proposed 2% cap on crop-based biofuels will kill industry

September 11, 2017 |

In the UK, Vivergo Fuels says the government’s proposed 2% cap of crop-based biofuels—far below the EU’s 7% cap—would destroy the country’s ethanol industry in the northeast that would not only lead to a loss of jobs in ethanol production and R&D but also leave farmers to export their low quality feed wheat at much lower prices than what they’re getting from ethanol producers. Livestock producers would lose a key source of feed protein and would have to look to imports to fill the gap.
