Abstract

This article analyses the compatibility of the European directive on biofuels with WTO trade rules. More precisely, it focuses on the European Commission's decision to submit biofuels to sustainable certification for those later being eligible to the tax exemption and counted in the mandatory target of 10%. After providing an in-depth analysis of the measure at stake, our analysis concludes that the criteria proposed by the European Commission might be discriminatory and then, that the European Union might be challenged at the WTO.
