German ethanol industry wants higher blending thanks to 62% GHG savings

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% in 2015 compared to the 50% mandated by the Renewable Energy Directive in 2017. As a result, the industry is calling for higher blending beyond the current 3.5% mandate. Current law foresees an increase to 4% in 2017 but the industry wants to see the increase implemented beforehand.
