E85 consumption soars 83% in France in 2022 boosting ethanol sales 13%

January 24, 2023 |

In France, Reuters reports that with an increase in demand for E85 in 2022, ethanol sales rose 13% to 1.47 million cubic meters compared to 1.30 million cubic meters the year prior. More than half of that volume was a result of E85 with sales of the higher blend increasing by almost 83% to 854,000 cubic meters. Demand is expected to continue in E85 thanks to the availability of conversion kits and high energy prices that are supported by the ongoing war in Ukraine, with sales likely to increase another 25%, potentially reaching a market share of 8%, double that of 2021.
