    Global Experts Urge Joint Efforts to Find New Energy Sources for Vehicles

    WHAT
    Urging greater world-wide efforts to develop new and better biofuels and vehicle renewable energies.

    WHEN
    Statements made May 23.

    WHERE
    Statements made at conference in Stockholm, Sweden

    WHY
    - A new generation of biofuels seeks to increase efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and other emissions
    - 1st generation fuels were agricultural crops like grains, corn, palm oil, and sugar cane; 2nd generation biofuels are/will include paper, pulp and wood.
    - Innovation: black liquor gasification. A fuel gas is produced from waste left by paper pulp purification. Higher efficiency but technical problems and startup costs remain.
    - Conference: 100 fuel production experts, politicians and car company reps, a dozen countries
    - EU goal: 10% of vehicle fuels to be biofuels by 2020.
    - Topics: the advantages and urgency of a new generation of automotive biofuels, especially w/developing countries increasing energy consumption.

    QUOTES
    Leohold: "We're facing a global problem, not a local problem…With the issues of climate change, Europe can't solve the problem alone."
    Henke: "If we stayed with that (first generation biofuels), we would be forced to reduce our energy consumption to a level that would be even below the one we have today…"
