Views sought on updated list of sustainable biofuel feedstocks

news item image
The European Commission has asked to hear views on the long-awaited update of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) Annex IX.
This draft act is open for feedback for four weeks until January 2.
This feedback will then be taken into account for finalising this initiative. The Commission added that the feedback received will also be published on its website and must also adhere to the feedback rules.
On the Commission website it said sustainable biofuels and biogases are important to increase the share of renewable energy in sectors that are difficult to decarbonise, such as the aviation and the maritime sector.
There is an approved list of sustainable biofuel feedstocks in Annex IX (Parts A and B) to this regulation and that the Commission must regularly review the list and add any feedstocks to the Annex that meet the criteria set out in Article 28(6).
This delegated act updates the list in the Annex to add the feedstocks that meet the criteria.
