Bioethanol

Political background

Bioethanol is used by fuel companies throughout Europe as it contributes to meeting the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) target of 10% renewable fuel by energy by 2020. Within the UK the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) is the legal mechanism by which the UK mandates the requirement for a percentage of its road transport fuel to be from renewable sources. The RTFO mandate is currently 4.75% by volume.
