Set the right Biofuel ratio

With the aim of sustainability, the EU intends to increase the share of renewable energies in the transport sector, which also includes a minimum share of biofuels. These fuels are produced solely from biomass. To meet the target, a ratio of biofuels has already been introduced in EU countries. 

In the PTV Developer Routing API this ratio can already be considered as parameter when calculating emissions. But since the value is country-specific and might change, it is set to 0 by default in the API.

How to adjust the specific biofuel ratio for your calculation is now shown in our updated documentation. You can also try it out with the corresponding code sample.
