The article comments on the significance of a method to convert biomass into a combustible hydrocarbon developed by German company Choren Industries. British Chancellor Gordon Brown has decided to give the railroad industry a duty cut on biofuel used for trains. The conversion process is more efficient because it uses the whole plant. One of the factors that prompt the firm to develop the technology is the tax breaks given by the German government for green fuel.
