Finland to require 30% biofuel, 10% advanced biofuel by 2030

Thursday, February 14, 2019

On Feb. 6, the Parliament of Finland voted in favor of a law that aims to require transportation fuel to be comprised of 30 percent biofuel by 2030, with advanced biofuels accounting for 10 percent of transportation fuel by the same year. The requirements for transportation fuel would ramp up starting in 2021.

According to information released by the government, the law would also require biofuel to make up a portion of light fuel oil used for heating, machinery and fixed engines. That requirement would also begin in 2021 and increase through 2028, when it would reach 10 percent.

UPM and Neste have spoken out in support of the biofuel mandates.
