CONCAWE’s market fuel survey: assessing progress in biofuel blending

07 Aug 2012

The use of bio-derived blending components in transport fuels is increasing around the world as a result of legislative initiatives to reduce transport greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, improve energy security and support agriculture. Within the European Union, the Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC) requires that transport fuels must contain at least 10% energy content of renewable products by 2020. This energy target will largely be achieved by blending sustainablyproduced biofuels into today’s market fuels.
