European Commission publishes strategy for low-emission mobility

July 20, 2016 |

In Belgium, the European Commission has published its Communication on a European Strategy for Low-Emission Mobility that explores policy options to decarbonize transport beyond 2020. The European renewable ethanol association (ePURE), representing conventional and advanced ethanol producers, welcomes the Commission’s commitment to assess the future role of low carbon fuels in Europe’s transport through a science-led approach.

ePURE calls on the Commission to examine the implications of its proposed policy orientations through a proper and fully objective impact assessment, based on the latest available science and its correct reading. Under the Commission’s better regulation agenda, such an impact assessment should objectively consider all low carbon fuel options available to decarbonize transport, not first define a policy objective and then develop an impact assessment around it, as was the case in 2012 with the proposed revision of the Renewable Energy Directive.
