The European Commission unveiled it's proposed EU Climate Law, which would enshrine in legislation the EU's political commitment to be climate neutral by 2050.
Commenting on the proposal, ePURE Secretary-General Emmanuel Desplechin said: “Achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires taking some important first steps in 2020, and making the best use of decarbonisation solutions Europe has right now. Low-carbon liquid fuels such as renewable ethanol are the most effective carbon-abatement tool Europe currently has for transport but they are under-utilised and often ignored in EU Green Deal discussions."
Desplechin added: "The IEA and IRENA say that achieving the EU’s long-term decarbonisation goals will require a massive increase in sustainable bioenergy. As policymakers revisit key energy and transport legislation in the coming months and years, they should find ways to make better use of proven, cost-effective tools such as renewable ethanol.”
