Wearing the cap: A place for food-based ethanol in the RED?

2015.03.14
The EU will probably soon reach agreement on amendments to the Renewable Energy and Fuel Quality Directives (RED and FQD) that will recognize concerns raised about indirect land use change and competition of food with fuel.

Low ILUC-risk; high loophole risk?

2015.02.19
The idea of ‘low-ILUC risk’ biofuels has been around for a while, and a recent paper identifies the type of regional policies that could allow ILUC to be avoided. But are recent proposals to add the concept to European legislation likely to deliver real benefits, or could they create loopholes that could actually increase ILUC emissions?

EBB and f(al)low

2013.09.10
A new iLUC study commissioned by the European Biodiesel Board reports very low values for iLUC emissions. These are largely the result of assumptions imposed that biofuel production will not lead to deforestation but instead to yield increase and cultivation of ‘fallow’ land. Without further evidence to support these assumptions, these new values cannot be seen as robust.
