Last updated: 23 July 2013

The programme's main objectives are:  

  1. 1) Provision of raw material using Latvian agricultural land for biofuel production;
  2. 2) Facilitation of biofuel production in Latvia; 
  3. 3) Promotion of use of biofuels in Latvia.

This programme was a response to the EU Directive 2003/30/EC which required shares of biofuel in road transport of 2% by 2005 and 5.75% by 2010.

The programme envisioned that Latvia can produce the required amount of biofuel in Latvian territory, as well as export surplus to other countries.
