Prize aims to power bio-fuel development
8:40am Friday 13th December 2013 in News
Transport Minister Baroness Kramer, right, announced a new competition to develop new forms of biofuel during a visit to a company at Milton Park, Didcot.
The £25m initiative will involve coming up with a new generation of fuels that are not reliant on using food crops, so freeing up agricultural land.
Baroness Kramer toured facilities at Future Fuels, which itself won a Government-backed competition to develop fuels from waste materials such as wood chips and straw.
She said: “Sometimes we get very pertinent ideas from this process — the competitive nature of it creates that level of success.”
