ABSTRACT
The article scrutinizes the condition of the biofuel production in Germany and Austria. Concerns over future energy supplies and prices are driving the market in Germany and while the environmental benefits are important, they are not the main concern for many. Straight vegetable oil showed the strongest growth in the sector according to Peter Emberger from the technology and development center of Germany.
