Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what percentage of biodiesel used in the UK was imported from the US in (a) 2007-08 and (b) 2008-09. (306975)

The Department does not hold information on biofuel supplied before the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) began in April 2008.

Provisional data from the Renewable Fuels Agency show that 38 per cent. of the biodiesel supplied for use in the UK in 2008-09 was reported as coming from the US.
