Act no. 117 of 2010 concerning the promotion of the use of renewable energy for transport and the greenhouse effect reduction of energy used for transport purposes (Biofuels Act)

legislation type Legislative
Passed in 2011
The purpose of this Act is to reduce the impact of climate change caused by transport-related emission activities. The Act stipulates that at least 10% of energy for transport must be produced from renewable sources by 2020. It sets the specific sustainability criteria and certification process necessary to fulfil the prescribed quota of biofuel. A 2013 amendment relaxed reporting obligations on fuel traders from monthly to annual. This Act is often referred to as the ?Biofuels Act? as it widely addresses the promotion of biofuel use to reduce GHGs. This Act transposes Directive 2003/30/EC on the promotion of the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels for transport and Directive 2009/38/EC into Hungarian law.
