Biofuels, the stop to Italy remains: EU rules on green cars will not be revised
The EU agreement and the stop to biofuels
Vehicles with combustion engines can also be registered after 2035 but only if they use synthetic fuels. This is predicted by the agreement reached between the European Union and Germany for the use of e-fuels. There will be no room for biofuels, however, because the EU regulation on stopping petrol and diesel engines from 2035 will not be reopened, as explained by an EU official. The same source specified that the agreement between the European Commission and Berlin on e-fuels concerns recital 11 of the text already contained in the current regulation. The ambassadors of the 27 member states will meet on Monday 27 March in the committee of permanent representatives to the EU (Coreper) to discuss the regulation. After the agreement on e-fuels, the Swedish presidency of the EU has put the point on the agenda, in view of the definitive adoption of the legislation by the Energy Council which will meet in Brussels on Tuesday 28 March.
