Evaluation and Progress Report 2016

Biomass Energy Sustainability Ordinance Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance

The Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) is the competent authority for the
compilation of the annual Evaluation and Progress Report, which is published for the
seventh time.

The report is based on the data on the biofuels and bioliquids converted into
electricity which were placed on the market in Germany in the reporting year of
2016. The greenhouse gas reduction quota again leads to further emission savings as
well as changed commodity flows within Europe and in third countries in 2016. As
in the previous year, biofuels and bioliquids with lower emissions were
predominantly used in Germany. The quantities with higher emissions were used in
other countries of the European Union rather, as well as in third countries.

The purpose of this Evaluation and Progress Report is to inform both the interested
public and experts on the developments of biofuels put on the market in Germany.
It contains new additional features, namely the presentation of maps as well as a
breakdown of the source materials of German origin.
