Norway requires 0.5% of aviation fuel to be advanced biofuels

May 5, 2019 |

In Norway, starting from 1 January 2020, 0.5 per cent of aviation fuel sold in Norway will be advanced biofuels, and the regulatory changes will be introduced in the Product Regulation. Norway is one of the first countries in the world to introduce such a requirement in the aviation sector.

Flights carried out by military aircrafts are exempted from the decision due to technical requirements in the defense sector.

In 2018, Norwegian Environment Agency invited to a public consultation on behalf of the Ministry of Climate and Environment. The majority of the actors were positive to the suggestion that the requirement had to be fulfilled with advanced biofuel instead of conventional biofuels. However, they believed that it would be too soon to introduce the requirement already on 1 January 2019. The Ministry of Climate and Environment followed this advice, and the regulation will therefore enter into force from 1 January 2020.
