Reducing CO2 from the transport sector without industrial biofuels May 2010
The European Union‟s Renewable Energy Directive (RED) was agreed between the European Council (ie member states), MEPs and the European Commission in late 2008. It sets out a commitment that 10% of land transport fuels must come from renewable sources by 2020. At around the same time, a new EU Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) was introduced. This obliges transport fuel suppliers to reduce carbon emissions from fuel production by 6% by 2020.
