Global Renewable Fuels Alliance vehemently criticizes WRI report on biofuels

February 1, 2015 |

In Canada, a new report from World Resources Institute is under fire from the Global Renewable Fuels Alliance. GRFA is accusing the report of using false data on the environmental and land use impacts of biofuels. According to GRFA, the report claims that “biofuels have increased competition for land and food but fails to show how.”

“Despite referring to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) throughout the report, the authors ignore recent comments from the FAO Director-General Mr. da Silva who praised biofuels for their social, agricultural and environmental benefits. The FAO chief said that biofuels are part of a necessary paradigm shift in global agriculture that will support increased food production.”
