This chapter explores in more detail the move away from biofuels produced from food crops. It analyses the current proposals for reform of the EU Renewable Energy Directive [RED] and questions the coherence of certain elements of this policy direction. It cautions that any amendment to the RED which supports the use of advanced biofuels should take into account the complex interdependencies which exist between climate change and agricultural production.
