Benefits of sustainable production
The sustainable production and use of biomass (including biomass, biofuels and organic materials used in anaerobic digestion) can bring important benefits.
Poor production techniques carry risks to the environment and potentially to human health. We regulate the production and use of biomass fuels. We also regulate farming through regimes such as Nitrate Vulnerable Zones and water abstraction.
