HVO and B10 will not be available for sale at German fuel stations until the end of April at the earliest, the environment ministry BMUV told Argus.

The biodiesels were previously expected to be on sale from mid April, but the relevant amendment to the 10th Federal Immission Control Ordinance (BImSchV) still needs signatures from the heads of the three federal ministries involved — environment, transport and economics — and the German chancellor, after which it can be published in the Federal Law Gazette.

The new regulations can come into force one day after publication. When this happens HVO100 and B10 diesel will be available for sale at German fuel stations.
