01/07/2015 Queensland Biofuels Mandate - SFMAQ & SMFCA Submission
This submission identifies the reasons why the stockfeed industry objects to any mandated level of biofuels within motor fuel. Governments should not favour one industry over another, the mandated use of ethanol will inflate Queensland grain prices at the expense of feed for animal feeding. This will put livestock production under greater financial pressure and lead to rising food prices. Queensland has a feed grain supply shortage and conversion to fuel rather than food should not be dictated by government regulation. The ethanol industry has to be economically viable without government intervention.
