FEFAC invites the European Commission to carefully study the impact of the proposed phase-out of crop-based biofuels after 2020, which is bound to have a detrimental impact on the European feed sector’s capacity to utilise EU produced proteins. Vegetable protein meals, resulting from biodiesel production, provide a significant contribution to the protein supply of the EU livestock sector. FEFAC, therefore, calls on the Commission to create a robust EU protein balance sheet that would serve as input to a comprehensive impact assessment of a potential gradual phase out of crop-based biofuels after 2020.
FEFAC and BFA are pleased to confirm the new dates of our XXIX FEFAC Congress which will be held on September 24-25, 2020 in Antwerp in the Queen Elisabeth Hall. We will shortly provide you with updated information regarding the draft programme and registration process.
