Below are the targets for the RTFO for the first three years. The targets for biofuel as a percentage by volume of road transport fuel are mandatory, while the targets for sustainability are indicative of expected performance.
Biofuel use by volume
Environmental sustainability standard
Greenhouse gas emissions reduction
* the intended target of 2.5% biofuel in the total road transport fuel supply has been compromised by the identification of a drafting discrepancy in the RTFO Order. The legal obligation is therefore for biofuels to make up 2.5% of the total volume of biofuel plus 'relevant hydrocarbon oil', where 'relevant hydrocarbon oil' excludes fossil fuel supplied across the duty point blended with biofuel.
