Description:Austria has transposed the European Directive 2003/30/EC on the promotion of the use of biofuels and other renewable fuels for transport. According to the Directive, Member States should ensure that a minimum proportion of biofuels and other renewable fuels is placed on their markets, and, to that effect, shall set national indicative targets. A reference value for these targets shall be 2 %, calculated on the basis of energy content, of all petrol and diesel for transport purposes placed on their markets by 31 December 2005. Austrias draft for transposing the law calls for a share of 2.5% by April 2005 rather than the requirement of 2% by December 2005.
