Sustainability criteria for biofuels specified

Sustainability criteria for biofuels specified- European Commission presents the criteria for determining high ILUC-risk feedstock for biofuels  and for certifying low indirect land-use change (ILUC)–risk biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels.

On 13 March 2019 and in support of the recast of the Renewable Energy Directive, the European Commission  adopted a delegated act setting out the criteria for determining high ILUC-risk feedstock for biofuels (biofuels for which a significant expansion of the production area into land with high-carbon stock is observed) and the criteria for certifying low indirect land-use change (ILUC)–risk biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels. This followed a public consultation over four weeks, which received 68564 replies. The European Parliament and the Council of Ministers have now, during a two-month scrutiny period, a right to express an objection. If no objection is received during the next two months, the text will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The two-month period can be extended for two additional months if requested by the European Parliament or the Council.
