Present/Future demand of biofuels in the EU is
supplied partially by imports since EU’s own
production does not cover demand.
Feedstocks (Grains/Oils/Cane) give to LATAM‘s
biofuels industry a cost/benefit advantage.
Argentine Mandatory quota may increase from B7
to B10 in 2012 & B15 2012/13
Agro-machinery can use blend B50(France approved
B30 in 2010 for cars).
Electrical supply of energy originated in Wind,
Hydraulic, Biofuels, Biogas, Nuclear, is also a major
issue in the next coming years.
