EUROPIA Position on Biofuel Regulatory Mechanisms

Posted on 01/03/2006 in Position Paper

EU Biofuel Directive published in 2003 requires Member States to set national biofuel targets and to develop policies in support of those targets. Many Member States have set national biofuel targets and have granted Mineral Oil Tax incentives (full or partial exemptions) to fuel products containing bio-components. However, recently at both Member State and European level there have been moves to consider alternative regulatory mechanisms to promote the use of biofuels in road transport fuels.
