Tiny green light. The Senate confirmed the legalization of used cooking oil as a fuel, but sharply limited the possibilities of its use.
The legalization of the use of waste edible oils as fuel was a proposal by the Green MPs adopted by the government in the draft budget version presented at 49.3.
It was first passed by the National Assembly last July in the Purchasing Power Bill. But the senators replaced the simple request with a report that was ultimately dismissed by the Constitutional Council as a “legislative rider.”
Thus, the position of the Senate has changed as it no longer opposes the measure. However, it restricts its use to “own fleets” only, meaning vehicles owned by a company or community that get their fuel from the same dedicated pump.
Government issues ‘unfavorable’ opinion
“You have to know that today the levels of pollution, emissions into the atmosphere are still too high,” said Jean-Francois Husson (LR), general rapporteur on the budget.
Experiments on captive fleets should allow “progress, because around this device there is monitoring, and fuel, and settings, and manufacturers.” This provision did not generate any debate in the half-cycle, but the government expressed an “unfavorable” view of the restriction proposed by the general rapporteur.
Earlier, the Senate raised the tax credit ceiling for the installation of an electric vehicle charging system by an individual, self-employed person or self-employed person from €300 to €500.
