FAME biodiesel supplies in the UK in the period totaled 375 millionliters, down 5.8% year on year, with bioethanol supplies 3.4% lower at 373million liters.

Diesel and gasoline supplies in the period amounted to 14.883 billion and8.075 billion liters respectively, up 2% and down 3.1% on the year.

Some 491 million litres of biofuel have so far met sustainabilityrequirements, of which biodiesel comprised 51%, bioethanol 46% and biomethanol3%. Waste/non-agricultural residue feedstock accounted for 68% of sustainablebiofuel, which is considered double-counted material in terms of itscontribution to the national biofuel mandate.

RTFO statistics also showed that 827 million Renewable Transport FuelCertificates were issued for fuel meeting sustainability requirements, 81% ofwhich were issued to double-counting feedstocks.

UK feedstocks accounted for 30% of biofuels, with used cooking oil fromthe US the most widely reported source for biodiesel (27%). For bioethanol,the most widely reported source was UK wheat (32%).

The UK currently has a blending mandate for biofuels of 4.75% on a volumebasis, with no minimum for either ethanol or biodiesel, but allowing doublecounting for waste-based biofuels, hence requiring less volume to meet themandate.
