German biodiesel exports down 23 percent

By Ron Kotrba | June 05, 2015

German biodiesel exports for Q1 2015 dropped to about 97 million gallons, down 23 percent from Q1 2014 exports of nearly 127 million gallons, according to an appraisal by the Agricultural Market Information Co. based on data from the German Federal Statistical Office.

The Netherlands received approximately a quarter of total exports and, despite a sharp 45 percent downturn in imports from Q1 2014, the country continued to be the main importer.

The biggest growth in imports of German biodiesel was seen in Sweden, where nearly 10 million gallons arrived compared to only 43,000 gallons in Q1 2014.

The GFSO also recorded a significant rise for Belgium and Denmark, while noting a drop in France’s imports to nearly 10 million gallons, which still leaves the country the third-largest importer of German biodiesel, with Austria coming in fourth.

Around 97 percent of German biodiesel exports went to other EU countries.
