"For the sixth year in a row, European renewable ethanol has increased itsclimate-change-fighting performance," said Emmanuel Desplechin, ePureSecretary General. "As policymakers look at how to realise Europe's cleanmobility ambitions, they need to make sure ethanol is in the mix."

The data also showed increased production of animal feed at 4.32 million mt in2017, up 6.7% on the year and a 9.3% increase of CO2 captured in 2017 totaling0.77 million mt.

ePure stressed that ethanol produced in Europe relies on domestic feedstock,in contrast to biodiesel, and highlighted the role it could play indecarbonizing transport for as long as internal combustion engine cars remainthe majority in circulation.

At the same time, the animal feed that is produced as a by-product of ethanolhelps address the feed deficit in Europe, it said.
