Summary :  To fight against greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy dependence, biofuels are a prospect for the future. There are multiple sectors: Ethanol from beet or sugar cane, methyl esters of vegetable oil come from rapeseed or sunflower.
By 2010, our fleet could run on 7% green fuel. A deadline that requires adapting agricultural production, controlling costs, promoting the co-products of these sectors and ultimately, changing the engines. "
