"If implemented, such derogations would exacerbate the negative effects already experienced by our sectors. The resulting reduction in demand would cause the shutdown of biofuel plants. It would also jeopardize the supply of products needed to produce hand sanitiser products, impact the proper function of the EU internal market for fuels and reduce the supply of animal feed. In addition, European renewable energy and climate commitments would be jeopardized."

The study noted bioethanol yield of 7,414 litres a hectare each year is achievable with five-year-old agave plants. The study also found that sugarcane yields 9,900 litres per hectare each year. However, agave beats sugarcane on a number of measures, including fresh water eutrophication, marine ecotoxicity and water consumption. The project also found agave uses 69 pct less water than sugarcane and 46 pct less water than corn for the same yield. The economic analysis suggests that a first generation of bioethanol production from agave is currently not commercially viable without government support, given the recent collapse in the world oil price.
The study concluded bioethanol derived from agave is superior to that from corn and sugarcane in terms of water consumption and quality, greenhouse gas emissions, as well as ethanol output..

The southern jet stream is a strong wind that forms the southern hemisphere, especially in summer and weather patterns. By 2000, it had returned to its natural course. It moved south in Antarctica to the latitude of every decade, affecting the paths of storms and rains in South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Australia.
Previous research has proven that this is mainly due to ozone layer deficiency due to synthetic chemical compounds such as ozone damaging CFCs, and HCFCs, which are found in refrigerators, aerosols and other industrial processes were phased out in 1987. The study found that the Montreal Protocol has halted the southern route of the jet stream since the year 2000 and it may begin to change as the ozone layer starts to close. Dept. 2019 satellite imagery revealed that the annual peak of the ozone hole was 16.4 million square kilometres, the smallest since 1982.
Ozone restoration is not sufficient to normalize the Southern Hemisphere climate, as other industrial emissions, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are harmful to the environment. There is a battle between increasing CO2 and ozone recovery. That is why we see a decline. Previous studies have reported that ozone holes have a chimney effect that emits some heat from the atmosphere, which means the Antarctic is warmer than the North.
