UFOP welcomes Germany’s decision to include biomass-based biofuels at 4.4% from 2026

December 24, 2020 |

In Germany, after long, controversial negotiations, the German government agreed last Friday on key points for the national implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). In addition to the gradual increase of the GHG quota to 22 percent in 2030, it includes the setting of the cap for biofuels from cultivated biomass at 4.4 percent from 2026. 

The Union for the Promotion of Oil and Protein Plants e.V. (UFOP) welcomes the agreement reached by the federal ministries as a significant step forward compared to the first drafts of the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) and as an important step for climate protection in the transport sector. The UFOP particularly emphasizes that the BMU, as the lead ministry, finally recognizes the role of biofuels from cultivated biomass as the most important climate protection component in the transport sector today and assigns them a stable role at today’s level until 2030. This would also ensure the continued provision of domestic feeds as co-products of biofuel processing, it said.
