This brochure explains the EU directive on the promotion of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport. The current types of biofuels are summarised and the directive is set in the wider context of European and international commitments and objectives on security of energy supply, greenhouse gas emissions and renewable energy sources. The development of biofuels so far, within Europe and the world, is described. The directive's targets for biofuel substitution for conventional fuels are presented and the possible support measures, including fiscal exemptions and setting technical standards are summarised, as are the reporting requirements from the Members States.
