Biofuels (RED II)

Updated: Jul 2


According to a report from the European Commission has launched a stakeholder consultation to expand the list of the so-called advanced or second-generation biofuels of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). This step is generally seen as quite controversial from environmentalists as well as parts of the industry. On the one hand, it is feared that previously banned unsustainable biofules could, supported by respective lobbying, find their way back on the list. One the other hand, the constantly changing EU legislation creates immense business uncertainties which counteract the years of necessary heavy investments.
