These EU-compliant biofuel and fuel blends are better known as E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline) and B100 (100 percent RME concentration, used for diesel vehicles).

The Seimas adopted amendments to the Law on Excise Duty, which provides excise duty exemptions for these fuels, with 90 votes in favour, 2 against, and 12 abstentions.

Excise duty exemptions to all other products containing biological materials have also been cancelled.
