Description:The Mineral Oil Duty Act was amended on 1 January 2004 to grant full exemption from duty for biofuels until 2009. Both pure and the biofuel component of blended fuels are exempt from excise duty. Draft legislation being considered (03/02/06) would end the complete exemption and introduce a 10 euro cents per litre tax for all biofuels from August 2006.
