I mean, converting poo, algae and all sorts of other things into fuel is absolutely great, but wine? Yes, the EU plans to sell off unwanted wine to make bioethanol. Surely this is a step too far. I mean, who are these people that aren’t drinking the stuff?
France, the world’s largest wine producer, would offer 239,995 hectoliters of wine alcohol for distillation, while Italy and Spain would offer 200,000 hectoliters apiece. The balance of roughly 53,381 hectoliters will come from Greece.
Notice how the UK isn’t on the list? Hmm, interesting.
