NFU in push for biofuel

THE National Farmers’ Union has taken delivery of a Ford Focus Flexible Fuel Vehicle to promote the use of biofuel in the UK.

Its vice-president Paul Temple will use the car, which can run on bioethanol made from crops such as wheat and sugar beet.

Temple said: ‘As the NFU’s Why Farming Matters report highlighted, agriculture can play a key role in the fight against climate change through the production of biofuels, which reduce carbon emissions and help provide a clean and secure source of energy.

‘What better way to show this in action than through the use of a car that is powered by biofuel. Driving a bioethanol-powered vehicle is no different to driving a normal petrol car and is much better for the environment.’
