Detail of outcome
The government response agrees to make a number of amendments to the RTFO guidance to reflect the comments we have received, including:
- further clarification of the definition of biogas
- providing further clarification on the treatment of co-processed hydrotreated vegetable oil
We would like to thank all those who responded to the consultation.
This consultation also seeks early views on how a number of forthcoming issues should be reflected in the guidance, including:
- the definition of highly biodiverse grasslands
- the new ISAE 3000 standard for verifiers
In addition, this document provides an update on several ongoing issues, including the potential new fuel chains in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED), the definition of severely degraded and heavily contaminated land, and a review of how fuels extracted from a gas grid are treated.
