Detail of outcome
This consultation proposed amendments to the Biofuel (Labeling) Regulations 2004. These regulations were to transpose Article 21(1) of Directive 2009/28/EC, the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). The article requires that where transport fuels (for all modes) contain more than 10% biofuel by volume, this should be indicated at sales points.
Implementation of Article 21(1) of the directive will help to inform consumers whose vehicles may not be suited for higher levels of biofuel. Furthermore, it will allow consumers with compatible vehicles to identify fuels with high biofuel content more easily.
