Nothing Neutral Here: Large-scale biomass subsidies in the UK and the role of the EU ETS PDF Print E-mail
Carbon Trade Watch | Sunday, 13 May 2012
NothingNeutralHere.gifEarlier this month Brazilian pulp and paper giant Suzano Papel e Celulose gained approval for the world’s most advanced trial of genetically modified (GM) trees to meet the global demands of biomass energy expansion.
