German biodiesel exports decline in 2015

By UFOP | February 01, 2016

German biodiesel exports from January through November 2015 were down almost a quarter from the same period in 2014. This is shown by German Federal Statistical Office foreign trade figures. A respectable 90 percent of exports went to EU member states.

According to Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft mbH (AMI), the sharp drop in biodiesel exports was first and foremost based on a massive decline in deliveries to the Netherlands, France and Poland. Demand from the Netherlands alone was down around 42 percent on the same period the previous year. Orders from Poland plummeted by 38 percent. Exports to France slumped by 26 percent, allowing the country to barely maintain its second position. Austria took third place, as exports there rose by just under one-fifth. By contrast, the volume of exports to the Czech Republic and Sweden went up significantly from the same period the previous year. German biodiesel exports to the Czech Republic were the highest ever, rising almost 80 percent to a total of 111,000 tons (approximately 33.3 million gallons).
