Statistics on the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) for the obligation year 15 April 2015 to 14 April 2016 (year 8) based on data currently available. This is the final report and contains the complete dataset for year 8.

A minor error has been found in Table RTFO03 on the number of Renewable Transport Fuel Certificates revoked in 2015/16. The figure should be 7.2 million rather than 6.8 million. We have corrected the table, no other information has changed.
