"The impact of a minimum 10% obligation for biofuel use in the EU-27 in 2020 on agricultural markets"

A Commission study published today shows that bio-energy production represents one of the major main stream opportunities for agriculture over the medium to long term in the EU. The 10% incorporation rate realised over the medium-term together with newly available technologies would assure a sustainable path in providing the EU with renewable transport fuels without disrupting the domestic food/feed and non-food markets. Imports would provide around 20 % of the biofuel consumption. About half of these would be first generation feedstock and mainly oilseeds and vegetable oils.
