V4 Agriculture Group Urge EU Support for Biofuel
by MTI (Politics.HU) The agricultural chambers of the Visegrad Four countries called on European decision-makers to support sustainable, crop-based biofuels, at a meeting of their leaders in Szekszard in southern Hungary on Monday.
The V4 group of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia has its own capacity to produce and supply to the EU an additional 8 billion litres of biofuel per year. This amount accounts for 1 percent of the continent’s total transport-aimed fuel needs, Hungary’s national agricultural chamber told MTI in a statement.
The 5 million tonnes of GMO and anti-biotics free animal feed additives produced as a by-product of biofuel could also replace one-fifth of Europe’s soya-based fodder imports. READ MORE and MORE (Associated Press/MyFoxNY.com)
