Title: Biofuels pathways. Input values and GHG emissions. Database (Directive 2018/2001)


This database accompanies JRC Report EUR 28349 EN version 1d - 2019. This final version of the report updates and replaces the previous version 1c published in July 2017. The pathways mainly affected by these final updates are: palm oil, waste cooking oil, animal fat and HVO. The database contains all the input numbers and sources used for the calculations of the typical and default GHG emission values presented in Annex V of Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (Renewable Energy Directive recast). It also contains: i) final GHG emissions results, ii) several worksheets with general input data used in various pathways iii) specific input data for all the considered pathways. Stakeholders can use the database to get a deeper insight into the values contained in Annex V, and into the input data used in each pathway (from cultivation of feedstock to conversion, transport and distribution of the final product), including their sources. Contacts are provided here in case of queries on the values and ...
