“Fuel Quality Directive should be extended after 2020” lead MEP underlines

Leading environment journalist Sonja van Renssen is joined by Finnish MEP Nils Torvalds (ALDE), rapporteur on Indirect Land-Use Change (ILUC) for the European Parliament, to talk about the position of transport in the EU 2030 climate and energy policy.

In the interview, Torvalds proposes to extend the ILUC file out to 2030 in order to give industry investment certainty in the long term. The biofuels rapporteur also underlines the need to continue the Fuel Quality Directive beyond 2020, which he says could open up fresh possibilities for compromises on the ILUC file. A blending mandate may be needed to create a market for advanced biofuels, Torvalds concludes.
