Abstract

This Decree, based on the provisions of the Slovenian Environmental protection Act, determines sustainability and greenhouse gas emission saving criteria for biofuels, bioliquids for energy purposes and biomass fuels, by providing: obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the life cycle of fuels used in transport; sustainability criteria for biofuels; verification of compliance with sustainability criteria for biofuels and issuance of accompanying certificates; use of a system of mass balance of raw materials or biofuels, and biomass fuels used in transport, with different sustainability criteria in the joint supply; methodology for calculating and saving greenhouse gas emissions over the life cycle of fuels used in transport; obligation for annual suppliers of fuels to report on the emission intensity and amount of greenhouse gas emissions from fuels and energy used in transport. This text is in accordance with several EU legislative documents as listed in article 1. The Annex (1-7) is also part of this publication (containing Rules for calculating the impact of biofuels, biofuels for energy purposes and their comparative values for fossil fuels on greenhouse gases; Rules for calculating the impact of biomass fuels and their comparative values for fossil fuels on greenhouse gases; Advanced fuels; Method for calculating the total life cycle greenhouse gas intensity of fuels and energy for fuel suppliers; Typical and default values of greenhouse gas savings over the life cycle of biofuels; Energy values of biofuels and fuels; Greenhouse gas emissions due to indirect land use change).
