[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Democratic Senator Lyn Allison, who is a Parliamentary Leader in Victoria, Southern Australia, announced her support of the Government’s decision to run public transport on biodiesel. A fuel switch shouldn’t stop there, however, and Allison encouraged the Federal Government of Australia to modify off-road diesel rebate excise rules to encourage other states to make the same switch. She called for fuel incentives for state governments, particularly for regions near sensitive marine environments. Biodiesel currently only qualifies for the rebate plan if it is mixed with petro-diesel, and this blend is much more harmful for the marine environment in the event of spills. Allison described a move to increase biodiesel incentives as a way for the Federal Government to reduce emissions in the country even though the ruling party refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol.
