EU continues search for biofuel 'green' criteria

Defining sustainability criteria for biofuels will be one of the first dossiers on the table of the newly appointed environment and energy commissioners, as persistent disagreements continue to divide the EU executive. Defining sustainability criteria for biofuels will be one of the first dossiers on the table of the newly appointed environment and energy commissioners, as persistent disagreements continue to divide the EU executive. A draft version of a European Commission communication on the EU's biofuel sustainability scheme was published by the Friends of the Earth, an environmental NGO, on its website on 3 February. The NGO said the document is highly controversial and failed to attract consensus during an inter-service consultation among the EU executive's different directorates-general (DGs).
However, a Commission spokesman denied that the paper had sparked any major internal controversy. The document will now be finalised at the level of EU commissioners' cabinets. While it is expected to be presented in March, it may be delayed as the new Commission is due to be appointed only next week, and will first need to put together its various cabinets before tackling the dossier.
