BDBe (2017): High acceptance for biofuels made from field crops
A survey carried out by the Federal Association of the German Bioethanol Industry (BDBe) highlights the positive attitude of consumers towards the use of biofuels from field crops.
In the 28 EU Member States, 69 percent of respondents are in favor of the increased use of these biofuels, while 15 percent are against it and 16 percent are undecided.
The figures for Germany are slightly less optimistic. Here, 61 percent of respondents are in favor of the use of biofuels, 23 percent are opposed to it and 16 percent are undecided. Dietrich Klein, Managing Director of BDBe, points to a lack of information. The German consumers are simply not aware of how severely CO2 emissions could be reduced through the use of bioethanol.
