Petition for rCCU Integration in the RED Presented to European Commission

Submitted by on November 28, 2016 – 7:49 pmNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  In Belgium, a petition for Carbon capture and use support was presented to Marie Donnelly, Director Renewables, Research and Innovation, Energy Efficiency, European Commission DG Energy; 86 renowned companies and leading universities have already signed.

The authors asked for inclusion of the following mechanisms in the new legislation on the Renewable Package:

  • • To fully recognise the increased flexibility of the renewable energy systems enabled by rCCU which allows for a higher share of renewables in the electricity mix, and implement additional incentives for technologies delivering this “flexibility”.
  • • To include a calculation method / default values accounting for “flexibility” in the methodological parts of the RED and the FQD.
  • • To make the utilization of CO2 emissions from biofuels production by rCCU accountable towards the reduction of the GHG emission of the biofuels.
  • • To further incentivize this by introducing stronger GHG emission reduction targets for biofuels or thresholds for land efficiency in the RED and the FQD. These targets can only be fulfilled by using biowaste as input and/or utilizing CO2 emissions by rCCU technologies.
  • • To fully recognise the utilization of green electricity via certificates of origin for rCCU.
  • • To guarantee that the electricity used by rCCU will be free from extra levies for end consumers or renewables incentives, because the electricity is not consumed but transformed to another usable energy form.  READ MORE
