ePure welcomes European Commission proposal in labeling alternative fuel


The European Renewable Ethanol Association (ePURE) said it welcomes the European Commission’s proposal on a Directive for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure. The association believes it’s a decisive step forward in labeling alternative fuel.

The Commission proposed to introduce a binding requirement to harmonize labeling of fuel pumps and vehicles. In a press release, ePure said that information on fuel quality, environmental aspects and vehicle compatibility will enhance consumer acceptance of ethanol and facilitate the introduction of E10 throughout Europe, which is a priority for the Commission.

“France has set the example: With clear and consumer-friendly labeling the E10 introduction was a smooth ride” said Mr. Rob Vierhout, Secretary General of ePURE.
