Norway achieves 20% blending mandate more than 2% early

December 26, 2017 |

In Norway, the government’s 20% biofuel by 2020 policy was already reached in 2017, well ahead of the 8% planned for 2017 and 10% for 2018. As of the end of September, 21% of fuel sold was biofuel. Last year also saw the target far beyond the expected levels, reaching 14% against the 5.5% mandated. Increased biofuel blending is helping to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation, with 2016 carbon emissions falling 3.6% from the year prior.
