Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You may already have seen this, but while following up some stuff on biofuels I came across this short paper (pdf) on Birdlife International. Echoing some of our concerns here about the sustainability of biofuel feedstock production, but obviously with special application to bird species diversity.

How is Australia gearing up for biofuel production, (if at all)?

Thanks, afew, for the html text.  It came through fine.  As for Biofuel in Australia, we are really a very small country (21 million) mostly in 3 major cities, with huge coal and natural gas reserves although not much crude oil.

Therefore, there is only modest incentive for biofuel although there is a small and growing industry that seems to be slowly making some inroads.

The Government has a Biofuel Task Force

Other than that I do not know much about it.
