Joint press conference by Günther Oettinger and Connie Hedegaard, Members of the EC, on the new EC proposal to minimise the climate impacts of biofuel production

Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, and Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action, gave a joint press conference to present a proposal to limit global land conversion for biofuel production, and raise the climate benefits of biofuels used in the EU. The use of food-based biofuels to meet the 10% renewable energy target of the Renewable Energy Directive will be limited to 5%. This is to stimulate the development of alternative, so-called second generation biofuels from non-food feedstock, like waste or straw, which emit substantially less greenhouse gases than fossil fuels and do not directly interfere with global food production.
