European Commission urged to take advantage of once-in-a-decade opportunity to reduce damaging transport emissions

The European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) has today called on the European Commission to rise to the challenge of decarbonising the transport sector, which is soon to be Europe’s largest single source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In a submission to the public consultation for the new Renewable Energy Directive (REDII), which is being drafted this year and will cover the period 2020-2030, ePURE sets out the case for a binding framework which maximizes the contribution of renewable fuels in decarbonising transport.
