ABSTRACT
The article reports that mandatory use of biofuels in gasoline will come into effect on January 1, 2007 in Germany. However, the German government's target was set at 1.2% based on the total energy content, down from original proposals of 2%, which has already prompted contrasting opinions from the industry.
