The article focuses on the intentions of the European Union (EU) to promote carbon dioxide emission reductions and greater biofuel use in the transport fuels mix. The EU outlined last year in its Energy Policy Review the raising of its biofuels use target to 10% of all transport fuels by 2020. It is anticipated that the EU will struggle this year to decide how its member states might encompass clearer greenhouse gas savings and sustainable land use into law.
