A SOMERSET environmental group has been nominated for a major national honour.

The Somerset Biofuel Project is in the running for a prize in the sustainable category at the 2007 Public Servant of the Year Awards.

The project, set up in 2004, implemented a renewable energy strategy, which lead to Somerset County Council becoming the UK coordinating partner of the EU-funded BioEthanol for Sustainable Transport.

The team have since been able to integrate a number of bio-ethanol vehicles into key public and private sector fleets.
