Indirect land use change, biofuels and bioliquids – pre-consultation -updated 25/08/2009

Consultation period: 14/06/2009 - 31/07/2009

The objective of the pre-consultation was to seek views on possible elements of a policy approach in addressing ways to minimise the impact of indirect land use change. This will feed into the drafting of a formal consultation document.

The Commission is required to report on such requirements by the Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources [2009/28/EC].

(There is a similar requirement, as far as biofuels are concerned, in the Fuel Quality Directive [98/70/EC])
