Exclusive: ePURE ‘Heartened’ by MEPs’ Views on Biofuels

Submitted by on June 29, 2017 – 2:25 pmNo Comment

by Daryl Worthington (Biofuels International)  The renewable ethanol association ePURE has responded to Hans-Olaf Henkel and Marijana Petir, two MEPs in the European Parliament who recently stressed the importance of biofuels in the decarbonisation of the EU’s transport sector.

In a recent article  in The Parliamentarian, Petir and Henkel discussed the future of the EU’s energy sector and the promotion of renewable resources. In that interview, Henkel described biofuels as “indispensable” for the transitional phase of the decarbonisation of the transport sector.

Petir meanwhile, addressed the European Commission’s proposed changes to the Renewable Energy Directive, dubbed RED II, which would see a gradual phase out of crop based biofuels such as ethanol from the fuel mix.

“I believe that the level of production of conventional biofuels should remain at seven per cent of final gross energy consumption in the transport sector at European level without phasing down to 3.8 per cent by 2030, as proposed by the Commission,” she told The Parliamentarian.

Emmanuel Desplechin, secretary general of ePURE, has responded positively to the arguments made by the two MEPs. READ MORE
