Talking policy with Tom Bradshaw: The bioethanol no brainer

08 August 2019 16:28

Last week I had the privilege of attending the all-party parliamentary group for British Bioethanol dinner at Westminster.

By the end of the dinner I was even more confounded than I have been over the past few years with the state of the British bioethanol industry.

 

I have never been able to comprehend what is stopping government giving the go ahead for E10 (10% inclusion of bioethanol in petrol), especially considering that we have a farming industry that is showing an ambition to reach Net Zero emissions by 2040 and government that has a commitment to Net Zero by 2050, a tariff schedule which is completely unsatisfactory for the arable sector and a multi-million pound plant in Hull which is currently mothballed.

 

I am now more confused than ever.
