CO2Star Campaign was launched in
the framework of the "Carbon Labelling"
project supported by the European Commission
eithin the 'Intelligent Energy for Europe"
of this campaign is to motivate passenger
car drivers to use biodiesel instead of fossil
diesel. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions
and thus contributes to combat climate change.
the CO2Star label was introduced
by the fuel
retailor Q1 in July 2007. The label
promotes CO2 reductions of 60%
for using biodiesel instead of fossil diesel.
This reduction number only applies for biodiesel
from rapeseed (rapeseedmethylester, RME) produced
in Germany. Thereby reference is made to international
renowned biodiesel experts.
to evaluate the success of this first pilot
initiative, consumer surveys are performed.
in 2007 the CO2Star Label will
also be introduced in The Netherlands. The
label will promote CO2 reductions
in the freight transport sector. For further
