Decree on biofuel Sustainability Criteria and transport fuel GHG targets

Key Information
Description: 
This Decree transposes the biofuels sustainability criteria from the European Renewable Energy Directive, as well as the greenhouse gas targets for transport fuels from the Fuel Quality Directive. It establishes sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids and limit values for greenhouse gas emissions from cultivation of agricultural raw materials, while maintaining the sustainable criteria. Details demonstrating compliance with various sustainable criteria, procedures for issuing certificates of competency for the verification of emission calculation details on qualification requirements for the issue of certificates of proficiency for the verification of emission calculation. In this decree is establishing a methodology for calculation greenhouse gas emissions throughout the life cycle of fuels and bioliquids, and the method of calculating greenhouse gas emissions saving resulting from the use of biofuels and bioliquids. Of course it explains the details of issuance of certificates of origin of biofuels or bioliquids.
Goal/Aim: 
Sustainability of biofuels & bioliquids; GHG reduction of transport fuels
