EU biofuels 'need to be certified for sustainability'

Date : 10th June 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



EU nations are being encouraged to set up certification schemes to ensure biofuels help cut emissions and do not threaten biodiversity. The plans, outlined by the European Commission, would apply to all types of biofuels, including imported fuel. The commission said the schemes would deliver substantial CO2 reductions and help protect forests and wetlands. Environmental groups said the voluntary measures were too weak to halt a "dramatic increase in deforestation".
