Norwegian consumers transitioning to biodiesel heating oil

November 14, 2016 |

In Norway, consumers have begun transitioning to biodiesel for heating as fossil fuel-based heating oil will likely be banned by 2020. Some municipalities require the underground oil tanks to be removed while others just want them stabilized by filling them with concrete. Others have had them cleaned to facilitate storage for biodiesel. The government first announced the transition to biodiesel for heating in 2009 as part of a wider climate change package promoting broad use of renewable energy, with support to the forestry sector as feedstock for the biodiesel seen as a key opportunity to help weather economic recessions.
