Biomass GERMAN CAR GIANTS OUTSMARTED BY BRAZILIAN SUGAR CANE

Brazil has taken the lead in a quiet transport revolution, reducing significantly its dependence on foreign oil supplies. According to the Brazilian Ministry of Transport most of Brazil's 20 million cars run already on gasoline mixed with 25% of sugar-cane-generated ethanol; and an ever increasing number of new cars in Brazil drive on 100% ethanol.

"Germany on the other hand has lost the lead in the global clean transport technology race and we have to catch up fast", warns Johannes Lackmann, president of the German Renewables Trade Association. "We may be still the largest producer of bio diesel but rather surprisingly German car manufacturers and industry lobbies have put the breaks on clean technology and infrastructure innovation."

Lackmann will be speaking at CETEX Germany 2005, the first major energy and transport industry forum following the German general election later this year, says: "Bio fuels are on average 20% cheaper for consumers than conventional fuels and energy costs will only stop rising if we replace imported oil and gas in great quantities with renewable fuel sources." Renewable energies in Germany replace already 5.4 million tons of crude oil and 5.3 billion cubic meter of natural gas per year.

Meanwhile, Ernst Ludwig Winnacker, the president of the Deutsche Forschungs Gesellschaft (industry research council), gave a stern warning to the German automobile industry not to miss crucial car innovation trends. "There are cars in the world, which offer the same performance by using only half the amount of gasoline. I find it alarming that German car manufacturers canít supply this technology today", said Winnacker in an interview with the Financial Times.
