European Parliamentarians stand up for biofuels in REDII

October 5, 2017 |

In France, the European Parliament’s AGRI committee rapporteur and shadow rapporteurs for ITRE and TRAN committees for the Renewable Energy Directive II echoed the need for policy stability for sustainable conventional biofuel producers through 2030 if there was to be hope that they would invest in advanced biofuels. At an event sponsored by the EU biodiesel chain in Strasbourg, a Purdue researcher who works with both the GTAP model used by the US and the GLOBIOM model used in the EU that shows high ILUC figures for oilseed crops said the GLOBIOM model needed more input from stakeholders to give a more accurate reflection of the environmental sustainability of biodiesel.
