The bioenergy sector points to the opportunities for farmers to offset agriculture's greenhouse gas emissions in their submission to the Government on proposals for inclusion of agriculture within the emissions trading scheme.
"The opportunities for farmers to offset their biological emissions is available now and uses proven technologies such as wood fuel from shelterbelts and woodlots, and producing energy from farm wastes. Including agriculture within the emissions trading scheme can have upsides which can provide new business opportunities for farmers," said the Bioenergy Association.
