USDA sees China’s biofuel production well below Five Year Plan goals

January 27, 2015 |

In China, the USDA attaché says biodiesel production rose 5% on the year in 2014 to 1.13 billion liters with production expected to reach 1.19 billion liters in 2015. That’s slower growth than the 18% rise seen between 2012 and 2013. Ethanol production was up 6% in 2014 at 2.8 billion liters. China’s 12th Five Year Plan calls for 4 million metric tons of ethanol production and 1 million tons of biodiesel production by 2015 but is nowhere near those targets.
