Great Britain Reviews its Biofuel Development Program

April 25, 2008
The government of Great Britain has started a review of the environmental and economic impacts of its biofuel development policy. According to British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, "We need to look closely at the impact on food prices and the environment of different production methods and to ensure we are more selective in our support for biofuels". If the results of the review call for change in approach in the management of biofuels development, the UK would also push for a change in the European Union biofuel targets..
