‘Mayor Boris urged to stop Treasury from ‘pouring used cooking oil down the drain’

February 2012: Business Green story: “The Mayor of London has been urged to confront the Treasury over its plans to change the way it subsidises fuel made from used cooking oil, warning the move could severely disrupt the capital’s businesses and force many taxi drivers to return to using fossil fuels. ¬†Under plans put forward by Chancellor George Osborne in the Budget 2011, biodiesel made from used cooking oil (UCO) will no longer receive a 20p duty differential, and will instead receive double certificates under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) from the start of April this year.”
