As part of the government’s Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), the Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a new consultation on proposals to introduce E10 petrol from 2021.

Peter Davidson, Executive Director of the Tank Storage Association, said of the news: “Ultimately, collaboration and partnership will be key to seize opportunities and enable solutions for change. We therefore look forward to responding to the consultation and to continuing to engage with the Department for Transport on behalf of our sector.”

Davidson added: “The bulk liquid storage sector plays a critical role in supporting access to traditional and suitable liquid alternatives, as well as in providing the flexibility needed to integrate these alternatives. Our sector already has some insight into what a changing landscape might mean for its infrastructure and is active in many of the areas that will unlock potential and drive success going forward.”
