First results of the low indirect land-use change (ILUC) pilot certification
Currently, the EU limits the role of crop-based biofuels as well as high indirect land-use change (ILUC) risk fuels. These limitations are based on concerns about the impact of ILUC. This project aims to demonstrate that biofuels can be produced with a low risk of such effects. The goal is to develop and test a methodology that could be used for low ILUC-risk certification of any type of biofuel feedstock project. Pilot projects will aim to produce additional biomass, either through increasing yields on existing plots, or through producing biomass on previously unused or abandoned land. The ILUC) Low ILUC Project Teamwill hold a webinar to present the findings from the first round of pilot audits.
