In Germany, UFOP (Union zur Förderung von Oel- und Proteinpflanzen e.V.) says the “Green Deal” announced by the European Commission could and should create the necessary “impulse” reliable sales alternatives to stabilize European agricultural revenue. Sustainable biofuels from cultivated biomass need to be a part of the overall strategy toward the decarbonization of the agricultural and transport sectors, it said. The UFOP demands an appropriate and sustainable biofuel strategy. The “food or fuel” discussion is a dead end, as it should be consistently pursued for all possible applications of products made from renewable raw materials. In this case, not only biofuels, but a significant part of the bio-economic strategy would be “dead”. For the UFOP, the early revision of RED II announced by the EU Commission is a possible solution.
