ICCT releases briefing report analyzing different versions of the ReFuelEU aviation regulation

September 20, 2022 |

In Belgium, the International Council on Clean Transportation has published a briefing paper assessing the differences between the European Commission proposal for a ReFuelEU aviation regulation and the European Parliament and the Council of European Union’s amendments. It identifies which proposals would increase low-greenhouse gas (GHG) compliance options and reduce GHG emissions. The assessment finds that the Commission’s original proposal for a sustainable aviation biofuel definition would provide more GHG savings compared to the Parliament and Council amendments because it would only qualify advanced biofuels with lower lifecycle emissions. However, a cap on the oily feedstocks found in Annex IX, B would help reduce fraud risk and would help to direct investment to the nascent advanced biofuel industry.
