Denmark Leads Europe by Giving Green Light to 0.9% Advanced Biofuels Blending Target

Submitted by on December 19, 2016 – 12:23 pmNo Comment

by Liz Gyekye (Biofuels International)  Denmark has agreed plans to implement a 0.9% advanced biofuels blending mandate by 2020 for use in transportation.  This news will provide a boost to second-generation biofuels. For example, biofuels made from waste materials.

This puts Denmark ahead of European countries such as Italy, which has an advanced biofuels blending mandate of 0.6%.

According to the Danish government, the requirement will be made to all suppliers of transport fuels, including gasoline, diesel and gas, and will be met with all kinds of advanced biofuels.

The news follows publication of the European Commission’s revised Renewable Energy Directive (RED), which proposes a mandate for advanced biofuels by 2030.

Speaking to Biofuels International, Bo Gleerup, CEO and co-founder of Nordic Green, said:  “It is great to see Denmark leading the way on this. I they could have even gone for a 2-4% blending target because the market can easily follow this. It’s great that we are the most ambitious country in Europe when it comes to this.”
