Sweden raises its game on transport biofuels

Sweden has reinforced its commitment to increasing the use of biofuels for transport with proposed legislation adopting the EU biofuels directive target of a 5.75% share by 2010.

Altogether 60% of Sweden's approximately 4,000 service stations will be expected to comply by 2009. See press release.
