Call for Evidence: Non-Road Mobile Machinery and Red Diesel
Does your firm use "Red Diesel?"
You may be interested in this consultation, which closes 24th July.
At Spring Statement 2018, the government announced a call for evidence on the use of rebated gas oil (often called red diesel) by non-road mobile machinery (NRMM - a class of portable, engine-operated machinery), in order to improve its understanding of what is preventing users from switching to cleaner technologies. Red diesel for agricultural use is outside the scope of this call for evidence, as is use by fishing vessels, home heating use and static generators.
Later in the year, the government will consult on the Clean Air Strategy, setting out how we will work towards our emission reduction targets as well as continuing to deliver air quality improvements in the UK. This will require contributions from a range of emission sources, and today we are issuing this call for evidence to improve the data sources available to government about NRMM red diesel use and to contribute to a better evidence base for future policies.
This publication also builds on the previous call for evidence into the use of red diesel, launched on 20 March 2017.
