Biofuels in the European context - Facts, uncertainties and recommendations

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

The main drivers for setting a 10% target for replacing transport fuels with biofuels are to save Greenhouse gas (GHG), to improve security-of supply in transport and to provide employment, especially in rural areas. This analysis attempts to answer the question "will the EU biofuel policy achieve these objectives?" and "would the benefits exceed the costs?"
