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. The move is being taken despite advice earlier this year that the target would be difficult to reach (EED 18/01/05). The new law will require larger fuel retail outlets to sell at least one type of renewable motor fuel. Altogether 60% of Sweden's approximately 4,000 service stations will be expected to comply by 2009. See press release.
