Teaching resource on biofuels and plea for feedback!

The Council has published a set of teaching resources based on its
report Biofuels: ethical issues. The resources introduce students to
the advantages and disadvantages of different types of biofuels, and
include case studies and a role play exercise to explore the drivers
of the biofuels industry and the impact that biofuels can have on
people's lives. Find out more

We are conducting a survey to gather people's views on teaching
resources produced by the Council. The survey should take around five
minutes to complete and your feedback would be much appreciated. Fill
out the survey

Biofuels – in December 2011, the UK Parliament adopted changes to the
Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation which sets new sustainability
criteria for biofuels used throughout Europe. The Council welcomed the
new legislation but raised concerns about the omission of social
sustainability criteria for biofuels and the lack of incentives for
the development of new, more ethical types of biofuels.The issues were
discussed with the Transport Minister, Parliamentarians and others at
an event hosted by the Council in the House of Lords on 5 December.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
