In the framework of a public consultation, AEBIOM, on 30 September 2008, has submitted its position on biomass sustainability criteria to the European Commission.

In this position, AEBIOM explains what should be considered when defining the sustainability criteria for biomass, proposes the methodology on how to count CO2 savings, explains how severe rules of sustainability criteria can be counterproductive and deals with the efficiency issues as regards the biomass use.
