This consultation seeks views from interested parties across the UK on implementing the European Union’s new sustainability requirements for bioliquids used for electricity generation under the Renewables Obligations for England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.  It also sets out new definitions for wastes and residues that apply to bioliquids, and solid and gaseous biomass.

These issues are relevant to biomass energy developers and generators, biomass feedstock suppliers, processors and distributors, environmental organisations, and members of the public interested in biomass energy.
