Biofuels barometer 2010

EurObservER-Biofuels-barometer-2010-baro198-fr-eng12.1 Mtoe of biofuels consumed in the transport sector in the EU in 2009
European Union biofuel use for transport reached the 12 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe) threshold during 2009, heralding a further drop in the pace of the sector’s growth, which rose by only 18.7% between 2008 and 2009 – just 1.9 mtoe of consumption over the previous year. The biofuel incorporation rate in all fuels used by transport in the EU is unlikely to pass 4% in 2009, which is a very long way short of the 5.75% goal for 2010 set in the 2003 European biofuel directive, which would require around 18 mtoe of biofuel use.
