Definition
This category includes all liquid fuels of natural origin (e.g. produced from biomass and/or the biodegradable fraction of waste) suitable to be blended with or to replace liquid fuels from fossil origin. Only liquid biofuels used for energy purposes — combusted directly or blended with fossil fuels — are to be reported. Liquid biofuels is a product aggregate equal to the sum of biogasoline, biodiesels, bio jet kerosene and other liquid biofuels.
