Road transport is a significant source of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. Using biofuels for transport can help your business reduce its vehicle emissions and control costs.

The two types of biofuels most used in the UK are biodiesel and bioethanol. The use of biogas, another type of biofuel, is currently limited within the UK.

Biofuels come in various blends and may require your vehicle's engine to be modified.

If you want to produce your own biofuel you may need a pollution prevention and control permit or waste management licence.

This guide explains the different types of biofuel available to businesses in the UK and where you can buy them. It also covers the legal requirements for businesses that produce, store and use biofuels.
