20180915 Biodiesel share increased despite declining diesel consumption
The UFOP reports that consumption of road traffic diesel and petrol in the first half year of 2018 was lower than in the 2017 reference period. However, over the last year, the use of biodiesel and bioethanol saw a significant rise. The surge in the incorporation rates of bioethanol and biodiesel could be due to the availability of less costly feedstocks for the production of these two biofuels.


20180911 F16 fighter jets are going to fly on biofuel
This summer, a trial with biofuels proved to be so successful that it is being expanded. The Air Force performed the test in July during the Frisian Eleven Cycle Tour, after Isabelle Diks (GroenLinks), had submitted a motion for this in the House of Representatives.

20180910 MEPs vote for higher CO2 targets for cars in the face of industry resistance
Recently, European lawmakers agreed to boost carbon dioxide standards for cars and vans in a fight that has pitted the interests of the car industry against efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The European Parliament’s environment committee backed a 45 percent cut in CO2 emissions compared to 2021 levels by 2030, which is much more compared to the 30 percent reduction proposed by the European Commission, and a world away from the 20 percent sought by the auto industry.

20180824 Biofuels push to help clear the air
China’s clean energy industry already provides more than 1 million jobs and will create even more in the coming years as the government steps up its production of biofuels, aimed primarily at the transportation sector. In addition, both climate change mitigation and pollution abatement have become important policy drivers for the government. The International Energy Agency said that although climate change and energy security are of concern to China, it is not clear which of these has been the primary motivator for the development of biofuels.


20180822 Can Europe defeat a palm oil 'monster' of its own making?
An article that highlights the challenges that biofuel policy is currently facing, from an environmental perspective. Under the EU's updated Renewable Energy Directive (finalized in June), palm oil imports should peak around 2019, then begin to drop in 2023 before being phased out entirely by 2030. These new rules aim to phase out the oil but the problem runs deeper, according to experts. However, The EU's new palm oil regulations are a big step in the right direction, say environmentalists.


20180821 Spatial planning necessary for the Climate Agreement
The official website of the Climate Agreement reports on the importance of spatial planning. The advice is given by spatial experts who were involved at each of the five tables, from the beginning of the process. The article underlines that the space required for the energy transition should be reserved for multiple functions at the same time. Also make a sensible link between the energy sources and the demand for energy. Provide an area-specific approach in both urban and rural areas.
