End of reduced duty on biodiesel ?

Post by adam2 »

I have heard, but can not substantiate, that biodiesel and bioethanol motor vehicle fuels are to become subject to the same/very similar excise duties as are imposed on similar fuels obtained from crude oil.

Can anyone confirm or deny, or supply more details ?

Bio fuels from food are not sustainable and so should be taxed as fossil fuels are but bio fuels from waste should be taxed at a lower rate.

Doubts that have been around for an awfully long time are now being listened to by all but those who are implementing the rules. As usual the EU is turning a blind eye and letting big business get on with making money as they have done with carbon trading.
