German ethanol industry wants higher blending

January 13, 2016 - In Germany, the national ethanol producers association says a report from the agriculture and food ministry, BLE, shows ethanol produced in country reduced GHG emissions by an average of 62 per cent in 2015 compared to the 50 per cent mandated by the Renewable Energy Directive in 2017.

As a result, the industry is calling for higher blending beyond the current 3.5 per cent mandate. Current law foresees an increase to 4 per cent in 2017 but the industry wants to see the increase implemented beforehand.
