Feature: EU biodiesel industry shows resilience
In line with the trend initiated in 2007, 2008 saw a relatively low increase in EU biodiesel production, and a reduction in two major producing member states, Germany and Austria. With 7.7 million tonnes, 2008 production increased by only 35.7% compared to the 2007 level (up from 5.7 million tonnes). 2007 already saw a reduced 16.8% increase compared to 2006. This has to be compared with 2005 and 2006 biodiesel production, which increased by 65% and 54% respectively. The increase of biodiesel production in 2007 and 2008 is still not in line with the EU objective for climate change mitigation outlined in the recently published Renewable Energy Directive (RED) 2009/28 and the EBB believes unfair international trade competition has severely affected the profitability of EU biodiesel producers since early 2007. For more than two years, EU biodiesel producers had to compete with heavily subsidised and dumped biodiesel from the US, known as B99. US B99 has been sold in the EU with a considerable discount, sometimes even at a lower price than the raw material soyabean oil.
