In Switzerland, the principle applies that plants are used first as food, then as animal feed and only last as fuel. Under the current funding conditions, the arable production of biogenic fuels will hardly ever play a role in Switzerland. The focus will be on renewable fuels from biogenic wastes and residues. Moreover, the Swiss Finish imposes additional social and ecological requirements compared to the EU. Furthermore, the Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE adheres to the principle that the use of biomass for energy purposes must not lead to direct or indirect displacement effects on food production or biodiversity, either in Switzerland or abroad.
