Unlocking the full potential of renewable ethanol, with ePURE President Alarik Sandrup
Alarik Sandrup is the recently appointed president of ePURE, the European Renewable Ethanol Association, where he advocates for greater use of ethanol to help meet the EU’s transport decarbonisation targets. He is also the Director of Public and Regulatory Affairs at Lantmännen, a Swedish agricultural cooperative.
In the interview with him at World Ethanol & Biofuels, they discussed EU policy makers’ attitude towards ethanol, how to reduce GHG emissions from feedstock cultivation, and why Sweden is leading the pack in terms of renewable fuel consumption.
“It’s well known that first generation biofuels are not really a big favourite of the European Commission… [but] this is not pushing policy and the whole system in the most cost-effective direction.”
