This table contains figures on the supply and consumption of biofuels and the amount of biofuels that are blended into ordinary petrol and diesel. There are also figures on the production capacity of biofuels. The figures are available both for the total biofuels and for the two types of biofuels used in road traffic and mobile equipment, namely biogasoline and biodiesel.
The supply of biofuels on the domestic market is equal to the sum of production, the import balance (net import) and the stock movements of biofuels minus bunkers for transport abroad. The import balance also distinguishes between pure and blended biofuels.
Consumption is equated with deliveries from oil companies to pumping stations in the Netherlands. For the most part, the deliveries are biofuels that have been blended into ordinary diesel and petrol and are therefore no longer recognizable as biofuels.
