The Biofuels Quota Act sets a minimum level of biofuels that must be used in road transport in Germany.
Since 2010, the total biofuels quota has been set at 6.25% based on energy content.
As of 2015, this quota is to be replaced by a climate protection quota, which will specify the minimum net contribution that must be made by biofuels to the reduction of GHG emissions. This quota will be increased to 7% by 2020.
