The European Commission proposed October 17 limiting crop-based biofuels’ contribution to European Union renewable energy targets for the transport section because it found that they are driving up food prices and not contributing to GHG reductions. The proposal would limit ethanol and biodiesel’s contribution to 5 percent; the EU set a goal to have renewable energy provide 10 percent of the transport fuel mix by 2020. Member states and the European Parliament must approve the proposal.
