The European Commission approved seven certification schemes that will be recognized throughout the 27 European Union member states. The seven schemes, which are run by private industry and by various nonprofit institutions, have been approved to do audits on biofuel producers to ensure that they comply with previously approved EU biofuel sustainability standards. The EU’s goal is to have biofuels provide 10 percent of all road transport fuels by 2020 as part of its drive to reduce foreign energy dependence and reduce greenhouse gases. The commission will be producing a new set of “indirect land-use criteria” for biofuels in September, to ensure that production of biofuels is not detracting from food production or from greenhouse gas sinks such as forests.
