Ensus new website, for me outlines the paradox at the heart of the biofuel from food processes. If you take food out of the food chain then there's less to eat. It really is that simple even if you're using animal grade wheat. Animals cannot surely live on just protein and bran? With a minimum of three stomachs that's hardly what they evolved to do.

It is good to see the carbon dioxide from the plant will be captured and re used in fizzy drinks, among other areas. How much will eventually find its way back to the atmosphere? Presumably Yara is doing this on a commercial basis and it would be interesting to know what the cost of doing this is compared to capturing the carbon dioxide produced as part of Yara's fertilizer production.
