EU re-opens investigation into alleged US ethanol dumping

February 20, 2018 |

In Belgium, an investigation was announced in the Official Journal of the European Union on February 20 relating to imports of ethanol originating in the US. ePure requested in November that the investigation is re-opened, and as the current 9.5% duty on US-origin ethanol that has been in place since 2013 was set to expire on Friday, the duty has now been extended another 15 months. Platts reports that ePure is concerned the European ethanol market is at risk of further dumping after China, Brazil, and Peru put up barriers to stop US ethanol imports but the US continues to export significant volumes.
