The European Bioeconomy Strategy, developing what is to be provided by some flagship initiatives within the “Europe 2020” Strategy, aims to pave the way to a more resource efficient society, reconciling food security with the sustainable use of renewable resources, while ensuring environmental protection. This ambitious plan aims to free Europe from oil dependency and demands a wider use of renewable sources in the energy sector. Moreover, as competing uses of biomass now place natural resources under severe pressure, renewable energies should be generated by agricultural and forestry residues and wastes. In this regard, the recent proposal (amending directives relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels and directives on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources) introduces measures which favor the so-called “advanced biofuels”. The article tries to describe the main steps of the course of action that has brought the EU to give even more attention to the land use issues for those lands devoted to grow feedstock. However, from the last documents issued by the EU it seems that things are changing, in particular in the sphere of biofuels. .
