UFOP: Biofuels usage of crop land remains minimal, and beneficial

January 7, 2020 |

In Germany, UFOP reports that “Only around 5 per cent of global cropland is being direcrted at this time into biofuels production — out of 1.56 billion hectares worldwide. UFOP also noted that “At the same time, biofuels production is in most cases very obviously located in places where there is a surplus of feedstock. If the surplus were not used to produce biofuels, it would have to be placed on the global market, where it would weigh heavily on already low feedstock prices. The use in biofuel production reduces the production overhang, generates extra value added and reduces the need for foreign currency for imports of crude or fossil fuels.”
