Advice on impacts of Government support for biodiesel production from tallow

This review was commissioned by the Department for Transport to consider the potential impacts of the RTFO on the other users of tallow as a feedstock, particularly the UK's oleochemical industry. The review is not a statement of Government policy. The Government will be discussing its findings further with stakeholders over the months ahead, and will consider them carefully in the context of current EU negotiations on future biofuel targets.
