German airline Lufthansa has been working on establishing a biofuel investment fund to help secure an alternative fuel supply for its jets. Here Joachim Buse, vice president, aviation at the German airline, describes the process so far.
Fifteen British agtech firms are to receive a share of an £18 million agtech investment fund, financed by the UK government and industry partners. But the sector needs more funding, according to industry insiders.
The creation of a Rs 100 crore ($16.6m; €12m) agtech investment fund does not go far enough to support the sector but alongside other agri initiatives is a step in the right direction, according to private equity professionals.
