We have previously managed to double the amount of biofuels in just three years. Now, the trend is strongly back. We lost roughly 2.7 TWh from 2017. This decline between years is causing more carbon emissions than the whole of flights to and stands for, " says Gustav Melin, ceo of Svebio, Swedish bioenergiföreningen.
if you're Counting on the energy content of the passed proportion of biofuels, down from 20.8% the year 2017 to 19.1% in the last year. It shows the preliminary statistics from statistics SWEDEN that these companies put together.
with the reduktionsplikt which was introduced on 1 July last year. The duty means that bränslebolagen must blend into the green components in fossil petrol and diesel in order to achieve given emission reductions. Svebio think that the quotas have been set too low and that companies do not have anything to gain by increasing the proportion of.
"the Figures show that the government introduced reduktionsplikt become a ceiling for biofuels which the incentive to increase the use of renewable fuels failed to materialise," says Gustav Melin.
a total of 16.4 TWh of biofuels, of which the green diesel HVO accounted for 10.6 TWh (13,7 TWh in 2017). A biofuels on the other hand increased in the last year was the ethanol fuel E85, which was the first time in many years. Also the use of rapsdiesel, B100, rose for the first time since 2015.
the Total deliveries of transport fuels for road transport amounted to 85.9 TWh in the previous year, of which gasoline accounted for 27,4 and diesel for 42 TWh.
Earlier in the spring came news from the Swedish transport administration, emissions of greenhouse gases from road traffic turned up in the last year, counter to the objective of a reduction by 70 percent by the year 2030.
