5 EU STATES CALL FOR STRICTER BIOFUELS SUPERVISION AFTER FRAUD

On 27 May, EU Observer reported that the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg have called on the European Commission to improve the supervision of biofuels across the European market, after cross-border fraud was detected from the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.  The 5 Member States produce the majority of European biofuels.  The initiative follows a number of alleged biodiesel fraud cases in which buyers were reportedly sold unsustainable used cooking oil (UCO) containing palm oil imported from outside the bloc.
