Higher biodiesel blending next year will see Brazil consume additional 600,000 tons

November 28, 2018 |

In Brazil, DTN reports that biodiesel demand will increase by 600,000 metric tons per year next year when the B11 blending mandate comes in, a 1% increase over this year, as well as allowing use of B100 in transportation such as buses, bringing total demand to 3.3 million tons. Current production is around 4 million tons from 40 processors. Tests are currently underway on buses and engines that could potentially operate on B100. Despite annual production of 4 million tons, the national vegetable oil industries association says there is plenty of room to expand production should demand require it.
