as well as for increased transparency in the industry. There have been similar biofeedback methods in European countries such as Austria and Germany.
The association explains that the biocomponent is twice as expensive as the price of the fuel itself. According to estimates from oil industry experts, biofuels cost more than 7 cents per liter of fuel. If the reduction is calculated without being in production, the final price may decrease by 9-10.
The abolition in winter could happen without breaking Bulgaria's general duty to comply with European legislation, BPGA said.
According to the euro requirements for diesel, there must be 6% bioaddition and 8% gasoline. The main material for biodiesel production is vegetable oils, especially rapeseed. Sunflower, soybeans and animal fats can also be used. From a hectare, about 1500 liters of vegetable oil can be produced.
