Industrial biofuels are already part of strategic agricultural products, and for which international agreements are under discussion. The fear of French producers is that the EU, in negotiations with MERCOSUR, prefers to grant import rights in Brazil, which produces 29 € hectolitre of ethanol against a French cost currently estimated at € 50, and which may fall only gradually do (hence also the importance of the tax exemption). The situation is better for oilseeds, including industrial facilities already in place are not used to full capacity. The main challenge today is the creation of new institutions for ethanol see Al No. 71)
"Handcrafted" fuels are now usable by agriculture, tractors and various installations. In addition to this "on-farm" development, the challenge could be to create markets in other sectors of the economy; but that these new producers of energy, which are the farmers, have a direct use of it, it is nevertheless the chance of a significant economic advantage, for a profession justly worried about tomorrow.
