Argentine Agroindustrial Council calls for B15 to offset national diesel shortage

June 7, 2022 |

In Argentina, Agritotal reports that given the lack of diesel that the country is going through, which generates complications in all spheres -both social and economic- losses and difficulties in producing, the Argentine Agroindustrial Council (CAA) through its associated entities, proposes that beyond the current mandatory blend of 5% for SMEs, companies can use biodiesel up to a maximum of 15%, through a market of free supply and demand.

“Our country has the raw material available, with the capacity to replace the import of more than 1 million tons of diesel with a 100% nationally manufactured product such as soybean biodiesel,” the CAA said, recalling the proposal made from the Council’s Biofuels committee, also highlighting the benefits of the use of biofuels in public and environmental health.
