Also available in the following languages:

Two EU laws adopted in 2009 promote the use of biofuels in the EU, ostensibly for the purpose of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transport sector.  However, both the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) could lead to higher, not lower greenhouse gas emissions unless the issue of Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC)

Agrocarburants et le CASI

Also available in the following languages:

Deux législations européennes adoptées en 2009 encouragent le développement des agrocarburants avec pour objectif de départ la réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) dans les transports. Mais il s’avère que ces deux directives, l’une sur les énergies renouvelables (RED) et l’autre sur la qualité des carburants (FQD), pourraient conduire à une augmentation et non pas une à diminution des émissions de GES, à moins que le problème du changement d’affectation des sols indirect (CASI) soit résolu.

Ce document présente un résumé du rapport réalisé par CE Delft en mars 2012, analysant les coûts supplémentaires que les mesures de mise en oeuvre de la Directive FQD généreraient pour l'industrie pétrolière et pour toute la chaîne d'approvisionnement.

Smarter trucks: better, not bigger

The European Commission is considering a change in the interpretation of its legislation on so-called megatrucks.  Under the new interpretation, the cross-border circulation of megatrucks, which is currently prohibited, would be allowed. This decision would have a negative impact on road safety and infrastructure and would drastically impact on the competitive position of the rail freight sector, without any benefits for the environment.
