EU: First Certification Schemes for Biofuels
Belgium | Germany | France | Bucharest | Austria | Sweden
On 19 July 2011, the European Commission presented the very first EU Certification Schemes for biofuels which prove that the biofuels produced in the EU or imported into the EU are sustainable. This means that no forest has been chopped down or wet lands dried to produce biofuels on it.
