Argentina’s Q2 biodiesel exports triple on year

August 31, 2016 |

In Argentina, biodiesel exports during the second quarter tripled compared to the same period last year at 404,215 metric tons. The jump in exports was supported by a 56% increase in production during the period to 704,717 tons with a total of 1.1 million tons produced in 2016 through June, up nearly 42% on the year. The WTO partially ruled in favor of Argentina’s complaint against the EU’s anti-dumping duties on Argentine biodiesel imports but the EU appealed and the appellate decision has yet to be announced. On the other hand, ethanol production fell 2.8% during the same period to 184,025 tons.
