The ARGUS RED Advanced FAME 0°C CFPP fob ARA price assessment
Argus RED Advanced Fame 0°C CFPP fob ARA is a daily price assessment for an advanced biodiesel made from feedstocks as defined by RED II Annex IX Part A, with a 0°C CFPP (cold filter plugging point). Like other biodiesels (Fame 0, UCOME, RME), it is blended with diesel to meet renewables targets, but differs from the other biodiesels by its feedstocks.
RED is the regulatory framework for increasing the renewable share in European transport fuels and governs how the European Union member states transition towards more environmentally friendly transport energy. The recast RED II transport target for 2021-2030 has specific sub-targets for advanced biofuels blends, starting with a minimum of 0.2% in 2022, 1% in 2025 and increasing to at least 3.5% in 2030. This makes Advanced Fame an instrumental biofuel to meet these increasing blend targets.
The shipping industry is another transport segment supportive of an advanced biofuel price assessment. There is an increasing pressure on this transport segment to decarbonize, and biofuels are an important short- and medium-term solution to meet the upcoming IMO2030 target (at least 40% CO2 intensity reduction from 2008 baseline).
