Consumers ask Cyprus to not use irrigated feedstocks for biofuels

June 6, 2018 |

In Cyprus, the national consumers association has written to the House Energy Committee asking that potatoes and other potential feedstocks requiring irrigation not be allowed for biofuel production due to water scarcity on the island. Instead, the association suggested feedstocks such as bushes and trees. They’re also calling on the committee to use science-based policymaking, suggesting that thus far biofuel policymaking hasn’t taken science into consideration. Only two small biodiesel plants currently operate in the country, producing a total of 6,000 metric tons per year.
