General Court of the European Union overturns biodiesel antidumping duties

September 19, 2016 |

In Luxembourg, the General Court of the European Union has overturned the European Commission’s antidumping duties against Argentine and Indonesian biodiesel imposed in 2013 in a far reaching trade ruling that experts believe will even impact trade relations with China, who the EU believes to be dumping manufactured products such as steel. The Argentina Chamber of Biofuels says its industry could restart biodiesel shipments to Europe in the next few months on the heels of the ruling. Duties have cut the industry’s exports in half and inflicted major damage on biodiesel producers. European biodiesel producers, especially those in the Mediterranean that don’t actively support UCO biodiesel production and blending, are most at risk of competition from renewed import flows.
