It costs more to produce commercially than petrochemical derv.... by
about 20%. But in UK prices, it means about 5p/litre more. Considering
more than 50p is tax at the moment, and the whole argument for tax is
that it discourages use and therefore is good for the environment (which
is bollocks by even the most basic economic argument). Burning
Bio-diesel still pollutes the cities but on a global scale does
absolutely nothing because the emissions are the result of plants that
absorbed those emissions the year before, so no imbalance in CO2.
