USDA sounds the alarm over China’s capacity to achieve its biofuels ambitions

In China, the USDA Foreign Agriculture Service released a new report looking at China’s biofuels market, saying it is unclear how the government will meet its ambitious targets for continued expansion given its decision to limit grain-based biofuel production and the limited availability of alternative feedstocks. 2016 fuel ethanol production is forecast at 3.15 billion liters (2.49 million metric tons), up 2.6 percent from 2015 in response to increased fuel consumption in provinces with blend mandates. Biodiesel production is forecast to stay flat in 2016 at 1.14 billion liters (1 million metric tons).
