Regulations and policy changes signal murky year ahead for biofuels

December 31, 2017 |

In the United Kingdom, ICIS reports that changes in antidumping regulations in the biodiesel market globally in the past year have left the outlook for European biodiesel murky for 2018, with concerns raised about a possible drop in production in the region as a result of the new antidumping landscape.

ICIS also reports that Europe’s fuel ethanol players will have wary eyes firmly fixed westwards in 2018, as a series of trading relationships with the US, Canada and the Mercosur countries are in a state of flux. A more outward-looking trend may be a wider theme, particularly with changes to sugar regulations which let EU sugar producers – a number of which produce ethanol – obtain access to the global market.
