A rush of biodiesel imports into Europe seen beginning next spring

September 14, 2017 |

In Germany, Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft mbH (AMI) says the EU Commission’s recent decision to lower import duties on Argentinian biodiesel (from the current 22-25.7 down to 4.5-8.1 percent) is likely to lead to a sharp rebound in Argentinian deliveries. If the tariff rates on Indonesian biodiesel are also lowered in the wake of a decision that is still outstanding, a considerable amount of biodiesel is likely to flow onto the EU-28 market in the spring of 2018, creating pressure on prices and affecting the competitive position of European rapeseed oil-based biodiesel.
