It should expressly exclude hydrogen derived from fossil fuels, with or without CCS, for...

    Eurofuel, the European Heating Oil association, believes that this initiative would benefit from opening its scope to include liquid fuels based on hydrogen. There is a real potential for hydrocarbon-based fuels for heating and Eurofuel would be keen to contribute.
