ACAF position paper on biofuels

As part of its work programme for 2006-2007 the Committee examined the impact of biofuel production on the safety, composition and availability of animal feed. In particular, it reviewed the types of co-products derived from the production of biofuels that have, or may have, a use in animal feeding. The Committee published its position paper on 30 April 2008.

At its 3 March 2010 and 3 June 2010 meetings, the Committee received presentations on biofuels. Following these presentations, the Committee agreed that its position paper should be revised and adapted in line with emerging developments.

This paper summarises the relevant information presented to the Committee during 2011 and sets out the Committee's conclusions, which will be subject to future review in the light of developments in this sector.
