Sustainable biofuel production (Ecofys)

 

ISRIC provides definitions and methodologies to support the identification of high carbon value land, degraded and heavily contaminated land. Also available data sources are assessed and guidelines are developed to assist economic operators in land status assessment in the compliance process. The Renewable Energy (RES) Directive provides incentives for the use of degraded land and heavily contaminated land through a GHG-bonus CO2 eq.
