Impacts of changes to the Renewable Energy Directive on palm oil biofuels
As part of our palm oil programme of support to the UK industry, Efeca recently published a briefing note on the impacts of the changes to the Renewable Energy Directive on palm oil biofuels.
Over the last two years, the EU renegotiated the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) as part of the EU’s wider Clean Energy Package. The recast Renewable Energy Directive (also referred to as “RED2” or “REDII”) amends the renewable transport biofuel sustainability requirements, and aims to move away from first generation biofuels, particularly the “high ILUC risk” biodiesels derived from palm oil. This short paper is intended to provide clarity on the RED2 requirements, as well as provide a future outlook for the demand of palm oil biofuel in Europe and the UK.
Please see the briefing note for greater detail.
