“A Brazilian Perspective on the EU transition to more Sustainable Biofuels”

 

Wednesday, 6th March 2013 - Brussels, Belgium

As the European Union proposes to revise its policy on biofuels, this event looked at the potential role that Brazil, the world’s second largest ethanol producer, can play in delivering truly sustainable biofuels to Europe.

It also discussed the measures proposed by the European Commission in light of the EU commitments under the World Trade Organization Agreements.
