The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) is a certificate trading scheme. The obligation is met by redeeming certificates. Certificates redeemed can be issued to an obligated supplier who supplies sustainable renewable fuel, purchased by obligated suppliers from other suppliers of renewable fuel and/or carried over from the previous obligation year.
The Department publishes regular statistics on the supply of fuel under the RTFO which are published at:
Report 6 for each year includes data on the performance against obligation by suppliers. The report 6 data from obligation year 7 (2014/15) shows that 1,671 million litres of renewable fuel was supplied, which is 3.29% of total fuel reported under the RTFO. In 2014/15 each supplier met 100 per cent of their obligation through redeeming certificates.
