G.A.X Global Agricultural Exchange A Significant No of Companies in the G8 and other rich countries have invested enormously in the bio-fuel industry using food stuff like corn, sugar, barley, Soya bean, oil palm rapeseed etc. as feedstock thus posing a direct competition with the food market. ‘Oil Palm’ a Major source of Biodiesel Sold for About $500 per Metric ton in 2006 And as at 2008 it sells for over $1300. 30% of America’s Corn which now goes into Ethanol Production would have been exported To Mexico for food and Animal feed and consumed locally by value added industries and exported to other countries. . : . But Promoters need to focus on biofuel derived from waste and Non food crops. Like Lignocellulostic Ethanol ( Fuel derived from breaking down enzymes from Municipal wastes, grass, agricultural waste etc). Biodiesel Produced from used Oil or non food oil.
