U.K. agency releases biofuel supply report

By | October 06, 2008
The United Kingdom's Renewable Fuels Agency has published its second monthly report on the supply of biofuels under the Renewable Transportation Fuel Obligation, which was implemented April 15. Between May and July, biofuels accounted for 2.92 percent of U.K. road fuel, totaling 2.53 percent for 2008. This meets the European Union's 2.5 percent target. Greenhouse gas reductions of 46 percent were also achieved, totaling 44 percent this far in 2008, compared with a 40 percent target. However, only 29 percent of biofuels met environmental standards in the latest report, bringing the 2008 total to 24 percent, compared with a 30 percent target.
