Título

UE – Llaman a una efectiva implementación de la cuestión del Cambio Indirecto en el Uso del Suelo en la política europea de biocombustibles (en inglés)  

Cuerpo

A group of companies, trade associations and NGOs have send a letter to the commission that a practical and effective solution are needed to address the ongoing debate about Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) in European biofuels policy.

The group warns that it blocks :

  • Meeting EU renewables targets
  • Helping to deliver energy security
  • Fostering rural economic development and
  • Developing a sustainable bioenergy system that can help towards decarbonising transport in Europe and beyond.

The companies include Royal Dutch Shell, Neste Oil and represent several billions of Euros of investment into the biofuels sector in Europe. These investments and also future investments are at risk by not adopting a practical and effective implementation of the ILUC policy.

The companies also fear the ILUC policy is counterproductive in its exclusion of certain feedstocks. The effects of banning one feedstock would lead to an increased demand of the alternative feedstock and herewith increasing the need for land.

Also any feedstock penalised by ILUC factors would have no opportunity to make further sustainability improvements.

The group claims that none one of policy options being assessed encourage producers to adopt additional practices that reduce ILUC risks, nor do they improve investor confidence for biofuel development. A combination of any of the four policy options under assessment would not only exacerbate their negative effects but also deliver no overall reduction in the carbon emissions of transport fuels.

There is a range of ILUC mitigation practices that are effective such as:

  • the use of co-products for animal feed purposes
  • crop production on degraded lands
  • improved agricultural production practices that lead to increased yields
  • other land management measures
  • negotiation of effective bilateral agreements with third countries
  • the development of certain advanced generation biofuels.

Such a market-driven approach ILUC mitigation would not require additional public funding.
