Members of the European Parliament from different political groups have signed a petition asking the European Commission to remove barriers to the deployment of sustainable fuels and technologies in transport by reviewing the current tailpipe approach to measure CO2 emissions. The petition, coordinated by the European Biogas Association, includes the following key messages:
· Current CO2 emission standards promote the development of green electricity but hinder the deployment of other sustainable fuels and vehicles.
· Lack of policy support will put at risk the scale-up of the industry and the achievement of climate goals.
· Biomethane belongs to the most promising alternative fuels to decarbonise transport in a swift and cost-competitive way, leaving no one behind.
