On March 21, the European Union’s (EU) Council of Environment Ministers (CEM) met to discuss and EU proposal calling for a 5 percent limit on how much crop-based biofuels can be credited toward the EU’s renewable energy goal of 10 percent of all transportation fuels by 2020. Members of CEM remain divided over whether the 5 percent cap should be included in an amendment to the so-called Indirect Land Use Criteria in the EU Fuel Quality Directive.
