Finnish Transportation Fuel to be 30% Biofuel by 2030Thursday, March 7, 2019
The Parliament of Finland voted on February 6 in favour of a law requiring transportation fuel to be comprised of 30% biofuel by 2030, with advanced biofuels accounting for 10% of transportation fuel by the same year. The requirements would start to be ramped up in 2021. Additionally, the new law would also require biofuel to be blended into light fuel oil for heating, machinery and fixed engines, starting in 2021 and increasing through 2028, when it would reach 10%. Finnish renewables company Neste and paper mill company UPM have spoken out in support of the biofuel mandates.
