German biodiesel exports top 1.43 million tonnes for 2015: UFOP

March 13, 2016 |

In Germany, UFOP reports that although German foreign trade in biodiesel was not quite as brisk in 2015 as a year earlier, export figures published by the German Federal Statistical Office verify that interest in biodiesel from Germany continued to be high. German 2015 biodiesel exports amounted to just over 1.43 million tonnes. Consequently, exports were down 16 per cent from the 2014 record, but still exceeded the long-term mean. Just under 90 per cent of deliveries traditionally went to EU member states. Above all, the Czech Republic and Sweden ordered more than usual, whereas top recipients such as the Netherlands, Poland and France imported less.

According to the German Federal Statistical Office, Norway was the most important third country, importing almost 128,000 tonnes. This translates to a virtually 50 per cent rise from a year earlier. At the same time, German demand for foreign biodiesel dropped by approximately 11 per cent, to 517,000 tonnes. This was to the lowest level on record, Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft (mbH) reports. Malaysia supplied 132,000 tonnes, just over one third more than in 2014.
