SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


Auto oil directives program goals

Respond to Ambient Air Quality Targets and an integrated approach requiring further measures to reduce atmospheric pollution caused by vehicles

Address growing concern over pollution from the transportation sector

Passenger cars represent within EU member states from 75 to 90% of the total traffic volume, goods transport 8 to 20%, while bus and two-wheeler traffic are limited to 1 to 2% each .

Number of Vehicles on the road and increase in vehicle miles traveled offset decline in most pollutants

Motor vehicles generate about 30 percent of all emissions of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds--the pollution that causes smog.

CO2 emissions from transport increased by 41% between 1985 and 1996 quickly becoming the largest source of CO2 emissions next to the energy sector. Road transport accounts for 85% of transport emissions

Implement a cost effective program with significant environmental and health benefits

When fully implemented, this program is estimated to reduce urban NOx emission by >39%, urban CO by >51%, urban benzene by >48%, urban PM by >39%, total NOx by >35%, total VOCs by >46%.

The European Commission and national Governments calculate that the Auto Oil legislation will prevent many deaths especially in urban centers, as well as cases of chronic and acute bronchitis, and other respiratory problems.

    EU Auto Oil II Predictions

    EU Auto Oil II Modeling results predict:

    • Large improvement in urban air quality by 2010, althoughCO2 emissions will continue to riseat least until 2005 before stabilizing.

    • Particulates, regional tropospheric ozone precursors (NOx -and VOCs), benzene and NO2 remain problematic.

    • The number of inhabitants living in citieswhere the air quality objectives for four or more pollutants are exceeded simultaneously will still reach 4.5 million in 2010.

    • Road transport will still have a major influenceon urban air quality in those cases where exceedances are predicted.

    Fuel quality developments in the european union

    EU Fuel Quality Overview

    • Past and Current Legislative/Policy Developments:

    • Ambient air quality targets (Framework legislation and daughter directives e.g SOx, NOX, NO2, PM, Lead and PAH)

    • Auto-Oil I, II Legislation (auto emissions and fuel quality)

    • Kyoto Protocol and climate change policy including: Voluntary CO2 agreement with ACEA, JAMA, KAMA (120g/km CO2 emissions for average vehicle) and emissions trading scheme

    • Other legislation/policy developments: CAFÉ, National Emission Ceilings, Motorcycle Emissions Directive, MTBE Risk Assessment, Enlargement

    • Current Major Issues and Alternative Fuel Developments:

    • Amendments to directive 98/70/EC on fuel quality and fuel Quality Monitoring and increase in tax incentive use

    • Alternative Fuels Communication with Bio-fuels Directive

    • CEN – CEN 589/228, FAME standard, development of ethanol standard

    • LPG, CNG, water based fuels and bio-fuels used across Europe

    SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


    Fuel quality developments in the european union

    EU Gasoline & Diesel Specs – 2002

    * Review clause: By end 2005 the European Commission will carry out a comprehensive review of the other non-sulfur

    parameters and alternative fuels and see if new specifications are necessary, the outcome of the various commitments

    with the auto-manufacturers to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new passenger cars, the effect of metallic additives on new pollution abatement technologies, and the final date of on-road and non-road diesel 10ppm introduction.

    **2005 introduction of 10ppm sulphur – Fuel must be geographically available in an appropriately balanced manner

    SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


    Eu fuel specs outstanding issues

    Tax incentives:

    How do we ensure geographic coverage and no product shortages in countries with lower or no tax incentives? Large difference between tax incentives for 50 ppm fuels e.g. 1.5 - 4.5 Ec/l

    Unleaded example has shown that geographic balance can be ensured with tax incentives and that Southern countries have used tax incentives for unleaded market penetration

    Non-Road:

    Accounts for 8.5% diesel volume (Concawe 2001) but in some cases <50% transport emissions.

    7 (UK, IL, FR, NL, BE, FL, ES) out of 15 countries (Concawe 2001) allow use of dyed/marked lower duty 2,000ppm heating oil.

    How do we ensure farmers continue to receive tax incentives? And that distribution systems function?

    From Air Quality to CO2

    EU moving from air quality concerns to climate change concerns.

    Transport sector largest CO2 emitter and biggest challenge to meeting Kyoto Protocol Commitments e.g. Lowering GHG emissions to at least 5% below 1990 levels during 2008-2012.

    Conventional fuels, vehicles and transport patterns greatest impact thus policy focus. Non-road and marine fuels increasing % of transport pollution

    EU CO2 voluntary agreement with European, Korean and Japanese auto makers will be reviewed.

    Promotion of alternative fuels especially renewables and fuel cell for climate change and energy security reasons.

    • Strategy:Security of supply, low environmental impact and fuel efficiency, high level of safety, and continued low overall cost of driving, new source of income and employment for rural areas.

    • Result:Council and Parliament agree on voluntary targets for Member States to increase share of fuel pool by 2020 of bio-fuels ( 5% based on energy content), natural gas ( 10%), hydrogen ( 5%).

    • Result: Exemption of bio-fuels from excise duty application

    “Communication on Alternative Fuels for Transportation and on a set of measures to promote the use of bio-fuels”:

    • Main Market and Economic Issues:

    • Production and process efficiency varies

    • Is set aside land enough (5.6 million ha = 1.2-5% potential of total European petroleum product consumption)

    • Environmental degradation factors e.g. fertilisers, pesticides, rural air quality, soil erosion, water pollution

    • Farming intensification practices, mono-cultivation/crops aesthetic, GMO’s????

    • Economics and price (in some case liquid bio fuel production cost 3 times cost of conventional fuels)

    • Large subsidies necessary yet conventional low sulphur fuels already taking chunk of current treasury revenue

    • Imports issue: Can we meet 2-5% bio-fuel goals domestically?

    • Does it make sense to invest in bio-fuels when fuel cells are on the horizon and other alternative fuels e.g. CNG, LPG are already on the market?

    SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


    Fuel quality developments in the european union

    “Communication on Alternative Fuels for Transportation and on a set of measures to promote the use of bio-fuels”:

    • Main Vehicle, Environmental and Emissions Issues:

    • Full environmental or air quality benefit analysis by Commission

      lacking e.g. no programme or stakeholder process

    • Real integrated policy approach between existing EU policy e.g. potential conflicts with CAP, Dir 98/70, ozone air quality targets

    • CO2 emissions data contradictory and controversial

    • Changes to gasoline engines necessary for greater than 10% ethanol issues related to corrosion properties

    • Volatility issues linked to ethanol e.g. handling and VOC emissions

    • Bio-diesel oil blends can create engine issues and greater NOx emissions e.g. Germany unregulated pure cooking oil use

    • No fuel quality specs exist for bio-ethanol

      Question: Will the Bio-fuels directive approach set a precedent for future alternative fuel policies? Should the Communication on Alternative Fuels cover more than just natural gas and hydrogen?

    SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


    European union fuel quality policy lessons learned

    Harmonisation of Member State laws under EU legislation is essential

    Air quality objectives/targets must be set and evaluated regularly

    Fuel and vehicle must be treated as a system

    Stakeholder process between government and industry fundamental

    Full scientific and technical assessment needed for acceptability

    - European Union Fuel Quality Policy- Lessons Learned

    SILAQ Meeting - Sofia, 9 April 2003


    European union fuel quality policy lessons learned1

    Fiscal incentives for market penetration very useful

    Unintended Consequences of Clean Fuels legislation

    Supply: Cleaner Diesel and Gasoline

    Age of vehicle fleet: Differences in climate across Europe

    Cost: Different excise taxation and VAT structure across EU leading to price differences,

    Competition between clean conventional fuels and alternative fuels for tax incentives

    Fuel quality developments in the european union

    Conclusions:EU Policy Hot Spots

    • EU fuel policy focus through 2003:

      • 10ppm sulphur conventional fuels (98/70/EEC) by 2005/2009 (diesel to be confirmed); Other parameters e.g. PAH, Metallic additives etc.. after 2005 Review [adopted Fall 2002]

      • Non-Road 10/50ppm sulphur diesel by 2009 [?]

      • Bio-fuels indicative levels by 2005 [adopted March 2003]

      • Alternative Fuels [DG Env. Study 2002; Review 2005 DGTREN Contact Group focus natural gas and hydrogen]

      • Fiscal Incentives will increase with Mineral Oil Taxation Directive

      • On the horizon: Heating oil and marine bunker fuels with lower than 1,000ppm sulphur?

      • Energy Security and Climate Change will continue to be the main drivers….
