Abstract

The latest EU Directives stimulate the spread of the biomass use for energy purposes, but impose restrictive parameters to achieve a more suitable and sustainable development of this sector. This refers especially to the use of this renewable source for biofuels production, particularly the first generation ones both within the European Union and outside. This will influence the future trend of the global biofuels trade, as well as the related feedstocks. It also becomes an important issue, because of some of the main biofuels producer countries, especially European ones, need to import large quantities of biofuels and/or their feedstocks. This second note of the authors’ research aims to describe the first generation biofuels trade and its features, particularly at European and Italian level. The latest EU regulations and the main biofuel support policies have been analysed too for underlining the positive oncoming developments and, at the same time, the implications about this trade.
