MEPs to vote on EU biofuels policy
Members of the Industry, Research and Energy Committee (ITRE) will vote on a report regarding the European Commission’s October proposal to cap support for biofuels made from food crops at 5% of total energy in transport. Oxfam is calling on the EU to rule out support for biofuels competing with food for crops, water and land. They are pushing up global food prices and driving people off their land.
