Introducing E10 to petrol

This short paper summarises T&E’s views on the questions posed by the UK government's consultation, Introducing E10 to Petrol. The proposed policy to increase the blending limit on ethanol and potentially raise biofuels targets are extremely retrograde. T&E recommends E10 not be introduced as proposed during 2021. Any future changes after this date should only proceed with appropriate sustainability safeguards and as part of a wider review of biofuels and bioenergy policy as part of the decarbonising transport strategy.
