The impacts of the EU Biofuels sustainability scheme in bioethanol markets
2011 (English)Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
The European Commission has adopted recent legislation aggregating many aspects of the promotion of renewable energy in Europe. This Directive proposal was put forward by the European Commission(EC)on 23 January 2008 and adopted in December of the same year. It was part of the Climate Change Package providing the EC regulatory approach on the most critical implications of a stronger biofuels policy for Europe. In the proposal the Commission unveils its sustainability criteria for the production and usage of biofuels, as well as binding 10% targets for all European member states by 2020.
The objective of this research is to explore the impacts of the proposed European sustainability criteria on the Brazilian bioethanol production and markets and the implications that this may have on the development of biofuel markets at a global level.
