Commission clears French state aid for SRF-fired power plants

According to the Commission, the funds can be used to support new installations or the repowering of capacities using SRF. To be eligible, at least 50 per cent of the alternative fuel must be derived from "renewable waste, such as leftover food or compostable waste from gardens".
