SPAIN INCREASES ITS BIOFUEL CONSUMPTION BY 15% ACCORDING TO THE ANNUAL BAROMETER OF EurObserv’ER

According to the new biofuels barometer, published by EurObserv’ER, Spain increased in 15% its consumption in biofuels during 2017. Most of this growth is due to an increase in the use of biodiesel of 17.1%; meanwhile the consumption of bioethanol grew by only 3%. This increase in the consumption is attributed to the mandatory rate on the energy content that distributors have to incorporate their...

New CDM Guide: Measuring Forest Carbon Stocks

A new field manual for estimating carbon stocks in forest projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has just been released. Forests store carbon, and thus reduce the carbon dioxide emissions that drive climate change. Under the CDM, projects are rewarded with a saleable certified emission reduction credit for each tonne of carbon dioxide they reduce or avoid. Afforestation and reforestation projects convert non-forested land to forested land through...
