Norway’s Parliament votes to end palm oil-biodiesel sales, consumption and procurement

June 14, 2017 |

In Norway, the Parliament approved a list of biofuel-related policies from asking the government to ban the use and public procurement of palm oil-based biodiesel to implementing the European Union’s sustainability criteria for biofuels. What’s more, it called on the fuel retail industry to join together in order to not use palm oil-based biodiesel and to supply biofuels that exceed the EU’s minimum greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. It also wants an end to all palm oil-based biodiesel to be banned from domestic sales.
