UK’s farmers union urges transport department to keep EU biofuels market as open as possible

December 22, 2016 |

In the UK, the NFU has met with ministers to urge the Department for Transport to keep biofuel markets as open as possible for UK farmers to remain competitive with their European neighbors.  NFU North East combinable crops board chair Brett Askew met with Department for Transport minister John Hayes MP in Westminster to discuss the department’s consultation on the future of biofuel policy in the UK. The NFU urged the department to set the ‘crop-cap’ at the EU maximum of 7%. The cap is designed to limit the amount of crop-based biofuels able to be used on UK roads. The department also suggests 0% and 2% as options.
