Questioning of the Price Waterhouse Coopers study on the biofuel E85.
A new study on the energy balance of the beet, corn and wheat bioethanol sectors will be carried out, because a number of experts have questioned the calculation methods of the Price Waterhouse Coopers Ademe-Direm 2002 study, which nevertheless served as a basis for setting up bioethanol channels.
The energy balances of bioethanols, beet, maize and wheat biofuels are challenged by a number of experts. They criticized the Price Waterhouse Coopers Ademe-Direm 2002 study, which served as a basis for setting up the bioethanol sector, for not taking into account all the energy costs attributable to the production of these biofuels. . A new, more contradictory analysis is planned. The various points of contention also relate to taxation and therefore the cost to the public finances and the fate of co-products essentially animal feed proteins.
