GLOBIOM study confirms European ethanol’s strong environmental credentials and low LUC impacts

The European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) welcomes the publication yesterday of the European Commission’s long awaited GLOBIOM study on the land use change (LUC) impacts of biofuels demand expected as a result of Europe’s 2020 climate and energy policy for transport. The GLOBIOM study finds that increased demand for European produced ethanol would have low impacts on land use change and confirms ethanol’s high net GHG savings credentials.
