Commissie Corbey adviseert afschaffing dubbeltellingregeling betere biobrandstoffen

Commissie Corbey adviseert afschaffing dubbeltellingregeling betere biobrandstoffen | Responsible Biofuels | Scoop.it

http://www.corbey.nl/adviezen/biobrandstoffen/dubbeltellingregeling-voor-betere-biobrandstoffen/

Responsible Bizz's insight:

De Commissie Duurzaamheidsvraagstukken Biomassa (Commissie Corbey) heeft de overheid geadviseerd om de bijmengverplichting, inclusief de dubbeltellingregeling, af te schaffen en vanaf 2017 te sturen op CO2-reductie. So far so good. Wel opmerkelijk dat 

opname van de gehele waardeketen van petrochemische sector en transportsector in het ETS als voorbeeld wordt genoemd voor sturing op CO2-reductie. Het ETS heeft immers bewezen niet te werken waar het gaat om CO2-reductie. Onbegrijpelijk dat ook in dergelijke adviezen vast wordt gehouden aan dit mislukte vlaggenschip van het Europese klimaatbeleid. Introduceer een directe belasting op de uitstoot van CO2. Dat stimuleert de verdere ontwikkeling van geavanceerde biobrandstoffen. Ook spelen alle partijen dan volgens dezelfde regels.
