In Argentina, Compañía Bioenergética La Florida’s new ethanol dehydration facility in the province of Tucumán designed by a Brazilian engineer has been inaugurated. The facility will produce 500,000 liters of dehydrated ethanol daily. The plant includes several improvements over standard dehydration facilities, using less energy, less vapor and less water consumption. Following the successful commissioning […]
In Argentina, the government has again raised the price blenders must pay for sugarcane ethanol for September, now to $1.04 per liter, about 2% higher than August and below the monthly maximum price increase of 5%. On the other hand, corn-based ethanol prices were cut slightly by 1.4% to 79 cents per liter. With concerns […]
In Argentina, the government raised the price for sugarcane ethanol by 2% to $1.04 a liter and by more than 3% for corn-based ethanol. In March, ethanol production reached 64,599 metric tons, up 55% on the year from 41,799 tons in March 2014. Compared to February’s production of 51,625 tons, March production was up 25%. Ethanol […]
In Argentina, biodiesel exports have found a home in the US with volumes growing and expectations of more in 2016, but stricter criteria on imports may hamper those ambitions. The USDA expects Argentine biodiesel exports to recover to more than 1 billion liters in 2016 from the 890 million liters it expects to see exported […]
In Argentina, the government has raised sugarcane-based ethanol prices to $1.04 per liter for July, reaching the maximum 5% increase per month allowed. Corn-based ethanol prices were only raised 2%. March ethanol production reached 64,599 metric tons, up 55% on the year.
In Argentina, only two biodiesel producers tendered to sell fuel for power production to the national regulator Cammesa. The tender seeking 70,000 metric tons of biodiesel apparently has higher specs than that for transport fuel, which mixed with uncertainty in the market due to June’s prices not having yet been published by the government left […]
In Argentina, the government cut the biodiesel export tax for May by more than a quarter to 9.8%, down from the startling 13.2% it set for April. The April export tax was nearly triple the average seen in previous months, with May’s still nearly double what was experienced through much of the past year. The […]
In Argentina, CARBIO biodiesel exports fell 75% on the year in April, just 12,000 metric tons, due to higher feedstock prices from a higher BO GO spread and continued trade barriers into Europe. Only about 9.4% of all biodiesel produced during the month was exported, down from 34% during the same period last year.
In Argentina, the country’s energy ministry says oil marketing companies must pay $1 per liter for sugarcane-based ethanol in June, up 5% over May. Prices for corn ethanol also went up but only about 1%. Ethanol prices rises are capped at 5% per month in order to ease inflation impacts.
In Argentina, the country’s biofuels industry expects biodiesel production to fall 20% this year due to tax uncertainty that has hit biodiesel export viability. Most plants are only running at 20% to 30% of installed capacity with production potentially falling under 2 million metric tons. A limited domestic market and price cuts are also hitting […]
