"The Danish Combined Food & Energy (CFE) System
Combining food or fodder and biofuel production can be a way to
improve not only the
economics, but also the ecology of farming. Such systems are
presently investigated as
part of a European research project.
One basic assumption of introducing a combined food and energy (CFE)
system is that biomass
should provide at least as much fossil energy as is consumed in the
direct and upstream
agricultural part of the scheme; this also includes the energy used
in harvesting and transporting
the biomass. This substitution of fossil with biomass energy is a
first step towards reducing
man-made CO2 emissions (Hall and House 1994, Schlamadinger and
Spitzer 1994) leading to a
more sustainable agricultural sector and society. "
