The European Parliament approved a proposal more favorable to the Industry Committee, this Wednesday, September 11, and ordered a limit of 6% as the target of biofuels use in EU transports.
With the economic crisis that hit Europe in recent years the political climate is no longer a priority, from a governments economic perspective, and this decision shows that the EU could go through problems in the future, to achieve the target of 10 % biofuels use scheduled for 2020.
The decision to restrict the use to only 6% is also related to high food prices, a theory which has not been proven.
But the fact can stimulate the development of technologies called second generation biofuels, which are not related to food agriculture.
Recalling that the decision still needs to be ratified by the governments of the European Union before entering into force.
