Today’s car industry is at a turning point. To maintain its global leadership and its environmental promises, the EU needs to shift towards clean mobility solutions. Decarbonising transport is therefore central to achieving Europe’s policy ambitions on climate change and air quality. But to achieve these commitments, a complete decarbonisation of the passenger car fleet is required. Europe cannot afford to wait decades for a “zero-emission” fleet. That’s why renewable ethanol is an effective existing solution to decarbonise EU roads thanks to its high GHG savings.
