China unofficially drops E10 blending mandate

October 4, 2021 |

In China, Western Producer magazine reports that according to USDA Foreign Agriculture Service analysis, China has effectively dropped its E10 blending mandate and will only achieve 2.1% in 2021. The country announced in 2017 it would achieve 10% by 2020 with the market expecting much of that volume to come from US imports until the country’s domestic production caught up. Only about half a billion liters were exported to China during the first 11 months of 2020/21 while it is expected to produce 3.4 billion liters in 2021.
