Abengoa’s Rotterdam ethanol plant confirmed closed

May 9, 2016 |

In the Netherlands, Abengoa’s ethanol plant in Rotterdam has been confirmed closed, bringing Europe’s production deficit to 1.12 million cubic meters per year. The 480,000 cu m/year facility as well as the 241,000 cu m/year Salamanca ethanol facility that shut in April will be closed for an undetermined amount of time. Traders are not concerned about immediate supply needs for the market because tanks in Rotterdam remain full. Driving season will pick up soon but ethanol imports are on their way from Central America to help fill the eventual supply gap.
