Fehler bei Berechnung der Emissionen von Bioenergie

Einem Dokument des Wissenschaftlichen Beirats der Europäischen Umweltagentur (EEA) zufolge sind die Emissionseinsparungen durch Biokraftstoffe falsch berechnet worden.

Demnach weisen fast alle europäischen Rechnungssysteme massive Fehler auf. „Die meisten Bioenergieträger haben erheblich größere Treibhausgasemissionen, als ihnen aufgrund der gegenwärtigen Berechnungssysteme zugerechnet werden“, sagte Helmut Haberl, Mitglied des Beirats und Professor am Institut für Soziale Ökologie in Wien.
