The European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety will meet Nov. 27 in Brussels during which European Union lawmaker Peter Liese plans to propose changes to a draft law on greenhouse gas emissions from airlines to shorten the period in which curbs on international carriers are limited to the bloc's airspace.
As detailed in a Nov. 20 Energy and Climate Report article, the draft law was proposed by the European Commission in October and would narrow the scope of greenhouse gas curbs on flights to and from the region's airports from next year through 2020.
In addition to aviation emissions, the committee's agenda includes discussion of carbon capture and storage technology and greenhouse gas emissions from maritime transport.
