Biodiesel share increased despite declining diesel consumption

Consumption of road traffic diesel and petrol in the first half year of 2018 was lower than in the 2017 reference period. However, the use of biodiesel and bioethanol saw a significant rise. The strongest demand for biodiesel in the past six months and the largest quantity since August 2017 was recorded in May 2018 at just about 205,000 tonnes. In the preceding months, consumption had already been considerably higher compared to the year-earlier period.
