Alien biofuel crops to be screened

The legally binding Recommendation 141, issued by the Bern Convention, is warning that some foreign biofuel crops are having a detrimental effect on the natural environment.

It states that certain imported crops are disturbing areas outside of cultivated fields and having a negative impact on native biodiversity.

As a result, the Council of Europe has made advances to reduce the potential dangers of these alien plants being processed as biofuel crops.

According to the experts, foreign plants need to be screened before they are introduced to certain regions. Without these precautions, alien plants my result in the loss of native biodiversity and farmland functionality.

Eventually, the number of these invasive crops needs to be cut, regardless of the financial outcome.
