The European Union has reached an agreement with Germany on the future use of e-fuels, synthetic fuels that can be mixed with traditional fuels. This was announced on Twitter by the European Commissioner for the Environment Frans Timmermans.
Timmermans announced the agreement specifying that work will now be done “to have the Co2 standards for the regulation of cars adopted as soon as possible”. The deal had been in the air for several days after German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, arriving at the European Council on March 23 in Brussels, said there was already “consensus” on allowing the use of combustion engine cars interior after 2035 using e-fuels. “Now it’s really just a matter of finding the right way in a pragmatic way to implement this promise that the Commission made a long time ago,” the chancellor said. The idea, he said, is that “there should be a regulation proposed by the European Commission to ensure that after 2035 vehicles that can be used exclusively on e-fuel can continue to be registered”.
