Biofuel and low-carbon truck investment stalls

Policy and investment in the UK's low-carbon truck and biofuels sector has stalled in meeting air quality emissions targets and CO2 reductions.

That's according to a new report from the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP), which found that the direction and complexity of fuel infrastructure investments have provided an 'unstable climate for investment' - particularly with regards to biofuels. (Scroll down for full report).

Announced at the LowCVP's Annual Conference yesterday (15 July), the report states that public policy has had a negative effect on UK biofuel investments and practically unchanged biofuel consumption since 2003, although biodiesel consumption had increased slightly.»
