ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs select committee report, Climate Change: The Role of Bioenergy, said the government needed to show real ambition on bioenergy and urged it to increase support for biomass, to match its current emphasis on biofuels for transport. The committee conceded that the UK does not have the land capacity to rival countries such as Brazil, seen as the pioneers of biofuels, in terms of production, but argued that it could match the achievements of countries such as Austria, Sweden and Denmark. INSET: TESTING FOR F&M.
