Stakeholder Press Release: EU Parliament concludes low carbon fuels should indeed be low carbon

Yesterday, the European Parliament voted on the use of renewable energy in the coming decade. Of all the big issues on the radar, the Parliament caught the one that tried to fly under it – synthetic fossil fuels. Produced by using massive amounts of renewable energy and fossil CO2 from industrial sources, the fuel would be emitting that same fossil CO2 back to the atmosphere from the tailpipe of the car it’s combusted in. By requiring the use of CO2 captured from the ambient air for its production, the Parliament ensured that the so called low carbon fuel indeed remains low carbon.

Stakeholder Press Release: New CO2 Emission Targets for Cars

On 8 November, the European Commission published its clean mobility package. The central piece of this package was the proposal on the reduction of CO2 emissions from passenger cars between 2020 and 2030. This regulatory proposal was much awaited as it will be a decisive tool for the EU to reach its objectives in terms of reductions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants. Ambitious CO2 targets will also have a direct impact on European consumers who would benefit from improvements in the cost of owning and using a vehicle. Disappointingly, the Commission’s legal proposal lacks the necessary ambition which BEUC considers necessary to deliver real benefits to European consumers. We therefore call upon the European Parliament and the Member States to strengthen this legislative proposal. Here are BEUC’s first policy recommendations in view of the co-decision process.
