Intending to ease competition with food production, the EU Parliament voted September 11 to cap the transportation industry’s consumption of biofuels that come from crops at 6 percent. This vote was one step in the EU’s attempt to back away from a requirement that 10 percent of energy for road and rail transportation come from renewable sources. The EU Parliament also voted for farm and industry waste to account for at least 2.5 percent of energy for road and rail transport by 2020.
