German Biodiesel exports increased due to high demand

March 3, 2018 |

In Germany, UFOP reports that according to export figures published by the German Federal Statistical Office, demand for biodiesel from Germany continues to be very high. Demand has grown strongly, especially in the EU-28. German biodiesel exports amounted to around 1.61 million tons in 2017. In other words, exports exceeded the previous year’s level by 4.4 per cent and are a major support for demand for rapeseed oil in Germany.

The EU member states are the main receiving countries, accounting for around 89 per cent. Whereas the Netherlands, the biggest purchaser of German biodiesel, ordered somewhat less it did than a year earlier, the second largest recipient, Poland, increased its biodiesel purchases by 2 per cent to 234,000 tonnes. Exports to Austria increased strongly by just less than 35 per cent, moving the country up to third place. Demand from Denmark showed an unexpected rise of 104 per cent.
