“The Langebaan lagoon is the only non-estuarine tidal lagoon in South Africa. It is situated on the West Coast, approximately 100 kilometres north of Cape Town. The mouth of the lagoon, on its northern side, is entered via Saldanha Bay1. The lagoon is a highly legislated area. It was proclaimed a marine reserve in 1973 in terms of the Sea Fisheries Act2 and in 1985 it was proclaimed part of the Langebaan National Park, whose name was later changed to the West Coast National Park.

In recent years,proponents of 'green and clean fuel' have argued that the costs of overreliance on fossil fuels could be reduced through transition to biofuels such as bio-ethanol. Global biofuel discourses suggest that any transition to biofuel invariably results in significant benefits, including energy independence, job creation, development of agro-industrial centres at local level and high revenue generations for the state with minimum negative impacts on the environment.

O investimento é, certamente, um factor com grande influência sobre a produção, por via do aumento de novas capacidades produtivas, da modernização do tecido produtivo, através da inovação, mais eficiente e com maior produtividade.

Novas capacidades produtivas significam mais emprego, mais renda para as famílias e aumento de impostos. Mais exportação e/ou menos importações. Pode implicar mais segurança alimentar, dependendo dos tipos de investimentos realizados (tipos de produtores, culturas e mercados de destino dos bens produzidos).
