Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) announced a proposal to increase the greenhouse gas emission value for gasoline to 88.74 g-CO2eq/MJ. METI also plans to expand the list of conditions, under which an unfulfilled bioethanol target can be carried into the following Japanese fiscal year. The revisions will affect Japan’s policy on biofuels in the transportation sector. METI will receive public comments in Japanese on the proposal until July 15, 2020.
