Carlgren Holds Fast to Ethanol

Published onsdag 23 april 2008 kl 11.34

Minister for the Environment Andreas Carlgren holds fast to alternative fuel Ethanol despite the latest criticism from Britain and Germany.

Carlgren told Swedish Radio news it was essential to advance the process of extracting climate-friendly fuel from Ethanol in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown as well as Germany’s Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul has recently expressed concerns that Ethanol might cause more damage to the environment than actually saving it.

Especially in developing countries, the production of Ethanol could oust the general food production – leading to severe problems for the people living there.

Sweden has already announced that it was planning to buy Ethanol from Ghana in West Africa in a few years time.
