    The Gas Vehicle Network, GVN, has called on the Department for Transport to extend a key component of the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) which are due to expire at the end of 2020. Current plans will see subsidies awarded to road transport biofuels which reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions end on 31st December. GVN has also voiced its support for raising the current GHG reduction targets for transport fuels.
