Review of the RED – Molasses for Food Alliance again identifies risk of losing raw materials against biofuels producers

The Molasses for Food Alliance, of which FEFAC is a member, has reminded that molasses should not be included in the Annex IX of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII), in the context of its ongoing review due by June 2021

Despite evidences provided to the consultants in charge of the review, molasses continue to be identified, not as a food & feed product, but as a waste and residue and will be further investigated against the eligibility criteria established in articles 28 and 29 of REDII.
