We need sustainable biofuels to reach Paris climate targets – Climate Ethanol Alliance at COP23

We need sustainable biofuels if we are to reach our climate targets in the transport sector as set out in the Paris Agreement. That’s the message that was driven home by the Climate Ethanol Alliance at this year’s UNFCCC Climate Conference, COP23, in Bonn, Germany.

Biofuels are becoming the principle technology in the decarbonisation of transport

Biofuels are the principle solution to emission reductions in the Transport sector for decades ahead, Climate Ethanol Alliance highlighted in delivering its message to key stakeholders at COP 23. Globally, the International Energy Agency reports that biofuels will supply a remarkable 93 percent of global renewable energy consumed in road travel by 2022, even with the addition of more EVs. Over that same period, global biofuel production is expected to increase at least 16 percent. By 2050, biofuels will deliver 42% of GHG savings in transport according to the International Energy Agency, confirming their position as the principle technology in transport...
