EU Commissions extends Red Tractor through November 5 until renewal is approved

August 28, 2017 |

In the UK, the National Farmers Union has welcomed news that the EU Commission has written to all EU-approved biofuel assurance schemes to advise that the Red Tractor scheme should continue to be considered compliant with EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED) sustainability criteria until November 5, 2017, pending full five-year re-approval.   

This comes shortly after the NFU called on the Commission to urgently address concerns that Red Tractor-approved crops, and their products, would no longer be able to enter the European biofuels market after the scheme’s approval expired in early August.
