The deployment of paraffinic fuels in Europe will improve Europe's diversity of supply and subsequently contribute to energy security. Since paraffinic fuels are substitutes for diesel fuel, their introduction will help to reduce Europe's growing dependence on diesel imports.
Paraffinic fuels also open up new avenues for innovation and jobs. The development and deployment of paraffinic diesel fuels can contribute towards the EU 2020 strategy of smart, green and inclusive growth. Their unique composition enables advanced engine technology and a great deal of the production and technology development of these clean, high quality fuels is based in the EU.
