Biofuels not meeting green targets

13 August, 2008
About 80% of the biofuel sold at UK pumps fails to meet government environmental standards, according to a report by the Renewable Fuels Agency. In its first monthly report on fuels supplied under the Renewable Transport Fuels Organisation (RTFO), the government agency said just 19% of
the biofuel supplied met its green standard.The Renewable Fuels Agency reported it was unable to say where the remaining 81% of biofuels had come from - or to prove it had been produced in a sustainable way.Biofuel accounted for 2.1% of UK road fuel for the first month of the scheme, which began in April. This fell short of the target for the year of 2.5%. The report also revealed that the biofuel market was dominated by imports, with most of the identified fuel coming from the US.The Renewable Fuels Agency plans to issue monthly updates.
