France raises biofuel blending mandate
The French government has raised the minimum mandatory share of biofuel blends from 7.5 % in 2018 to 7.9 % in 2019 and 8.2 % in 2020. The blending target for 2030 is 15 %. Local feedstocks will have priority. The finance bill by the French National Assembly for 2019 also supports biofuels production from residual or lignocellulosic feedstocks.
