Increased Agricultural Production

South Africa: Biofuels Strategy

This strategy is based on a draft developed by the Energy by the Biofuels Task Team in 2006. The strategy proposes to make the liquid fuel supply 2% biofuels in 5 years. It targets sugar cane, sugar beet, canola, sunflower, and soy, but avoids use of corn because of food security issues. The strategy seeks to continue incentives to develop biofuels through tax breaks and exemptions, and addresses issues of production,  land use, water resources, and funding.
