New ILUC mitigation study is a potential game changer in debate about biofuels

Biofuels produced with low or no risk of Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) can contribute substantially to achieving the EU’s 2020 climate & energy targets in transport, according to a new study published by the University of Utrecht today. The study “ILUC prevention project”, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, investigated the potential to mitigate or prevent ILUC risks associated with biofuels production. The European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) welcomes the research findings, believing them to be a vital contribution in the debate about ILUC.
