The Hague, March 3 (IANS) Many biofuels are less sustainable than petrol and diesel, Dutch think tank CE Delft said Tuesday.
"If you take into account the land use, CO2-emissions and artificial manure, the results of the biofuels are less sustainable than presumed," it said in a report Tuesday.
According to the report, biofuels from soya oil and palm oil are the least sustainable.
CE Delft indicates that biofuels from cooking oil are the best biological alternative. In the Netherlands, this is the most used of all biofuels.
