Danish government introduces bill on blending mandate

17.05.2016 08:00


The Danish government has announced that it will introduce a technology-neutral blending mandate of 0.9 per cent advanced biofuels in energy consumption for transports. If adopted, the blending mandate bill will be applicable from 2020. It can be compared to a blending mandate of 2.5 per cent second-generation bioethanol.


This is an important step towards a realisation of the project Maabjerg Energy Concept.


Thomas Dalsgaard, Executive Vice President of DONG Energy, said:

"It's very good news that the government has presented a proposal for a blending mandate of 0.9 per cent advanced biofuels. It will pave the way for a market in Denmark for second-generation bioethanol. Now, the task is to succeed with the financing of the Maabjerg Energy Concept, so that Denmark can take an active part in this new market."
