Under the RTFO, NORA must make several determinations.


Determinations from 1st January 2023

Biofuels produced from feedstocks listed in Annex IX of RED II are eligible to receive two Certificates per megajoule.  Where a feedstock is not explicitly listed in Annex IX, the RTFO Team will carry out a determination to decide the eligibility of such feedstocks.  In the event that Annex IX is modified by the European Commission, the updated Annex IX list will take precedent.  NORA will maintain a list of the feedstocks for which a determination has been carried out.


Determinations up to 31st December 2022

Under previous regulations, up until 31st December 2022, biofuels were eligible to receive two BOS Certificates per litre, if the material used to produce the fuel could be considered to be one of the following: a biodegradable waste, residue, non-food cellulosic material, ligno-cellulosic material, or algae.
