The EC’s executive arm said in its 2030 climate and energy framework yesterday that itwouldn’t set new thresholds on the carbon intensity of fuels used in transport from thestart of the next decade.Environmental groups said the EC’s proposal to drop a law curbing the carbon intensityof transport fuels would enable oil and products from tar sands to be brought to Europe,particularly if new pipelines are approved.
