ANP approves temporary reduction of biodiesel to 11%

Last Wednesday (7), the collegiate board of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) approved an exceptional and temporary reduction in the percentage of mandatory mixture of biodiesel to diesel oil to 11% in the two months of November and December 2020. Currently, the percentage is 12%.

In a statement, the ANP said that "the measure is necessary to continue the national supply, since the supply of biodiesel for the period cited might not be enough to meet the mixture of 12% diesel B, which has been widely consumed, despite the current pandemic situation".

The 76th auction for biofuel contracting, which will serve to supply the market in November and December, was suspended and updated schedule will still be published by the ANP.
