France increases biodiesel limit to 8 percent in diesel fuel

By Ron Kotrba | January 14, 2015

France’s energy ministry recently issued an order to up the allowable biodiesel concentration in diesel fuel sold at public fueling stations across France.

Ministerial order DEVR1431074A increases the allowable concentration of biodiesel from 7 to 8 percent.

Groups such as FuelsEurope and the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association are calling on France to keep the blend limit consistent with the standards set by the European Fuel Quality Directive (2009/30/EC) and the European Technical Specification for Diesel fuel EN590:2013, which call for a maximum of 7 percent fatty acid methyl ester content in diesel fuel.
