Emmanuel Desplechin said: “As the main EU institutions begin negotiations on renewables policy for the post-2020 period, the EU must remain committed to a meaningful binding target for renewables in transport one that does not rely on artificial multipliers to create the illusion of better performance and make it easier for countries to meet their targets,” “It should also keep in place the maximum contribution of crop-based biofuels at 7% essential for safeguarding current and future investments. And it needs a strong commitment to ramping up advanced biofuels”

Thomas Schroeder said: “The compromise caps all conventional biofuels at existing consumption levels, failing to differentiate most sustainable ones such as ethanol. This is a missed opportunity in the fight against climate change,”

After much deliberation, the European Parliament has voted in favour of the revised Renewable Energy Directive (often dubbed RED II). The plenary of the European Parliament adopted its first reading position on RED II on 17 January. It has been met with mixed responses within the biofuels industry....
