EU backs deal to limit use of food
The next generation of advanced biofuels, made from waste or algae for example, does not raise the same problems, but it does require more investment.

And those trying to develop advanced biofuels say the progress they are making is under threat.
gas a concern highlighted by the crisis over Russia's seizure of Crimea.
Initially, the European Union backed biofuels as a way to tackle climate change, but research has since shown that making fuel out of crops such as maize displaces other crops, forces the clearing of valuable habitats and can inflate food prices.
The compromise backed on Wednesday includes a 0.5 percent non binding target for next generation biofuels, which environment campaigners say is nowhere near enough.
Food based biorefiners which have invested on the basis of the original 10 percent say a lower target threatens jobs.
"It is time for the EU to put its cards on the table: Do we want to stay dependent on polluting fossil fuels or do we want to harvest the potential of innovative biofuels technologies?" the group, Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels, asked in an open letter.
Environment and humanitarian campaign groups said a limit on first generation food based biofuels was a small step, but they were still concerned about the amount of land required.

Diplomats said Wednesday's compromise would set a 7 percent limit on the Nike Air Max White Mesh
The debate has drawn together a group of companies, ranging from British Airways to Denmark's Dong Energy and Finland's UPM Biorefining, which support advanced biofuels. They say the European Union will lose technology to other parts of the world if it does not provide sufficient incentives.
EU ministers are expected to endorse the decision at a meeting in June and after that it will have to be considered by the newly elected European Parliament.
"Europe's thirst for biofuels is fuelling hunger, land grabs and deforestation in the developing world," Marc Olivier Herman, Oxfam's EU biofuels expert said.
It could mean that the overall goal to get 10 percent of transport fuel from renewable sources by 2020 is missed, analysts say. Currently around 5 percent of EU transport fuel comes from renewable sources.
BRUSSELS, May 28 (Reuters) EU diplomats on Wednesday agreed to limit production of biofuels made from food crops in response to widespread criticism that they stoke inflation and do more environmental harm than good.
Epure, which represents bioethanol refiners, said in a statement the compromise proposal lacked ambition and that biofuel should make a major contribution to limiting EU dependence on imported oil and Nike Air Max Ultra Essential Blue
The compromise, agreed by diplomats in a closed door meeting, follows on from a stalemate late last year when governments failed to agree on a proposed 5 percent cap, which amounted to a policy U turn.
