The Australian Government is currently considering introducing a fuel quality standard for diesel biodiesel blend (B20) automotive fuel under the Fuel Quality Standards Act 2000 (the Act).
A technical discussion paper on setting a fuel quality standard for diesel biodiesel blend (B20) automotive fuel under the Act was released by the department on 23 March 2012. The paper outlined possible parameters, limits and test methods that could be used by the department to determine compliance for the B20 standard.
The purpose of this technical discussion paper was to seek formal comment from stakeholders on the proposed diesel biodiesel blend (B20) automotive fuel quality standard under the Act prior to the introduction of the proposed standard.
