Romania: Romania Approves New Biofuels Blending Exemptions

In mid-April, the Government of Romania (GOR) approved Emergency Ordinance (E.O.) 47/2020 to provide flexibility from biofuel mandates for local petroleum stakeholders. The GOR also subsequently passed implementing regulation Ministerial Order 890/2020 which outlines how Romanian fuel suppliers can seek exemptions from GOR biofuel blending mandates during the ongoing state of emergency. While locally produced biodiesel can cover roughly 70 percent of domestic demand, Romania is fully dependent on imported bioethanol.
