In connection with the Spring Budget, the Government announced that the tax on environmentally friendly fuels should be raised at the end.
The reason is a long-running conflict between Sweden and the European Commission.
Fact: Swedish Petroleum and Biofuels Institute
For several years, Sweden is in a protracted conflict with the EU Commission. The reason is the Swedish carbon tax, which came into being in the early 1990s to get both drivers and companies to use environmentally friendly biofuels.
But the Swedish tax distorts competition, the EU argues, claiming that the tax should not be any difference between fossil fuels and biofuels.
If not, the Swedish government is acting in danger Swedish producers of biofuels will be forced to pay back the "overcompensation" previously received because of the carbon tax and pay the penalty rate. According to Aftonbladet sources can totally involve hundreds of million.
"We have to do this"
In order to maintain the carbon tax in the longer term and avoid the producers are going on an economic blow, the Swedish Government in connection with the Spring Budget propose that the tax on E85, low blanded - ethanol and biofuel FAME raised at the end, experience Aftonbladet.
- We must do this, otherwise there will be fines for companies. There is a threat from EU on a deadline or else, says a source.
The plan is to tax on E85 is increased by more than a penny per liter at the end of the year and by 55 cents on the low-blend ethanol. The tax on the FAME was increased by more than a penny per liter starting on January 1st 2015, but will be further increased by 3 to 13 cents by year-end.
Part of the autumn budget
