The UK government has adopted a new approach to biofuels for transport and decided to slow down the enforcement of the UK's Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation, which requires fuel suppliers to increase the mix of biofuels in road transport fuel by 1.25% year, rising from 2.5% in 2008-09 to 5% in 2010-11. Instead the government will consult on extending the 5% deadline to 2013/14.
