ABSTRACT
The article reports that the European Commission has launched a public consultation for an incentive/support system for biofuels to facilitate the proposed 10% mandatory use by energy content in petrol and diesel. It is noted that sustainable biofuels are set to play a crucial role in meeting the Commission's target to cut greenhouse gas emissions in Europe by 20%. The consultation document also asks whether future legislation should encourage the use of ethanol and biodiesel in high blends.
