‘ePure Monthly Bulletin June 2018’
Monthly bulletin with articles covering: • Real progress on renewables – or just pretend? Four things to know about EU biofuels policy • Europe’s farmers support more EU crop-based biofuels, less palm oil • Finding the right biofuel balance • NGOs tell Commission to listen to science and differentiate biofuels • Joint letter to Council on importance of including crop-based biofuels in the renewable fuel mix


‘Subsidy to a series of hydrogen projects for sustainable transport’
The government will subsidize the construction of a series of gas stations for hydrogen to make the transport sector more sustainable. Experiments with electric transport for cargo are also encouraged. This is evident from the list of approved projects which was published on Thursday (31st May) in the context of the Demonstration Regulation on Climate Technologies and Innovations in Transport (DKTI Transport).


‘I wished I could be optimistic’ – an interview with Eelco Hoekstra, chairman of the board of Vopak.
Hoekstra believes the energy transition in the Netherlands and in the world will take more time than currently anticipated. He argues that the transition to a sustainable global economy is hugely complex and requires additional efforts politically, technically and financially.


‘Marine fuel costs are up more than 20% this year’
: The world's biggest container shipping group Maersk Line told customers it is raising prices in response to increased marine fuel costs. Bunker prices, as marine fuel is known, have risen more than 20 per cent since the start of the year, resulting for Europe in a price of $440 per metric ton, the highest since 2014.


‘Fossil-free commercial transport achievable by 2050 – Scania’
The Swedish truck manufacturer has published a white paper on the developments which Scania believes hold the future for the logistics sector as means to transition from fossil fuel to renewable. Biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells and electrically-charged roads are the way according to Scania to reduce its CO2 emissions.

‘Sales electric car picks up, sales plug-in hybrids collapse’
The sale of fully electric cars in the Netherlands almost doubled last year. Dutch companies and consumers purchased 8,200 electric passenger cars. These figures were published by Statistics Netherlands (CBS). The sale of so-called plug-in hybrids collapsed. Of this type of cars - with both a petrol and electric motor and a plug - only 1,800 were sold, 90% less than in 2016. However, the growth was primarily pushed by the Dutch automotive fiscal policy (i.e. additional tax liability, ‘fiscale bijtelling’). In addition, the growth remains to be in the margin compared to total car sales.


‘Neste buys Dutch trader in animal fats’
The Finnish biofuel manufacturer Neste takes a majority stake in the Dutch trader in animal fats IH Demeter. An acquisition price was not made public. With the purchase, Neste wants to ensure its supply of raw materials for biofuels. The two companies have been working together for a long time.


‘Electrification leads to increased demand for gas’
University of Groningen professors Machiel Mulder and José Luis Moraga González have discovered that electrical heating and electrical transport hardly dampens gas demand. In the progressive scenario of full electrification of heating and transport, this amounts to an increase of 50 percent in 2050. The research showed that the electricity will mainly be generated by gas-fired power plants. Thus, Energy saving and heating networks offer more solace, or actually having many more renewable energy sources.
