EU should strengthen existing sustainability rules for biofuels and promote only the most sustainable

A European Court of Auditors report published yesterday has found that there are a number of gaps in the European Commission's existing biofuels sustainability certification framework. The European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) welcomes a number of the report's findings despite the fact that the report assessed the sustainability frameworks in only 4 member states. The sustainability regime for biofuels in Europe can and should be strengthened further to ensure that only the most sustainable biofuels, like European ethanol, are promoted by EU policy after 2020.
