About the project

The aim of this project has been to give an overview of the EU biofuel sustainability criteria within the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD). The aim is also to describe how the sustainability criteria have been implemented in Swedish law. Further, the aim is to briefly discuss how the implementation has affected biofuel stakeholders and to discuss future changes to the sustainability criteria.

The report content has been developed into a fact sheet for f3 about sustainability criteria.
