USDA says EU biofuel growth will depend on uptake of higher blends

In the Netherlands, the USDA agricultural attache in the Hague says current blending of food crop based ethanol and biodiesel in Europe is estimated at respectively 3.3 and 4.3 percent. Further growth in the use of conventional biofuels will mainly depend on the successful introduction of the higher blends such as E10 and E85. The blending of non-food based biofuels is estimated at about 0.6 percent. During the past five years, production of biodiesel from waste has taken off, while the commercialization of cellulosic ethanol is lagging behind.
