Why has the EPA stated that bio fuels are bad for the environment?

    The ability to store a liquid as a combustible energy source, is an advantage that biofuels have over electrical storage systems, and one reason that transportation and diesel machinery industries are investigating the biofuels future.

    However, in January 2011, the EPA released a first draft reporting the results of a 2007 government mandate to increase biofuel production in the US.  It found that biofuel production in the US has not proven to be environmentally sound, particularly corn ethanol production.  Water contamination through chemical runoff, destruction of natural habitats, concerns over invasive species through the increased demand for feedstocks are some of the major concerns listed in the report.
