RFA and Growth Energy slam EU over ethanol import tariff

February 19, 2013 |

In Washington, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) and Growth Energy (GE) issued the following statement based on the European Commission officially imposing a $83.03 per metric ton tariff on U.S. ethanol entering the European Union:
“This tariff is outrageous and based on absolutely no facts or evidence of harm.  An extensive investigation was conducted and there was no proof to substantiate the European Union’s protectionist claims of dumping. Imposing a country wide anti-dumping tariff is unprecedented and unfounded.  This is blatant protectionism at its worst. This is absolutely not the final chapter. We will challenge this policy in every manner possible.”
