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. Ethanol Europe created the CEA and brought together several Ethanol Producers from around the world to promote ethanol at COP23 as a climate solution that works in today’s petrol transport fleet. Over 2 weeks the CEA made the case for ethanol to policy makers, key stakeholders and the world media at the largest climate...

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...

The forecast is warm for a future without biofuels

By Chris Bliley, Climate Ethanol Alliance at COP 23   Electricity generation is getting greener every year. Ongoing innovation and competitive economics make solar, wind, and biomass increasingly attractive to leaders who seek to pull our planet off a crash course with climate catastrophe. Unfortunately, the data show that an abundance of low-carbon electricity is not enough. The vast majority of the world’s transportation is powered by liquid fuels, which can offer superior power, range, and ease of storage and distribution.   That is why no effort to hold down global carbon emissions can succeed without aggressive measures to...
