E.U. removes U.S. ethanol duties

Renewable fuels groups are pleased that the European Commission has decided to not renew anti-dumping duties on European Union imports of U.S. ethanol. Representatives of Growth Energy, the Renewable Fuels Association, and the U.S. Grains Council welcomed Wednesday’s decision.

Growth Energy’s Craig Willis says removing the duties on U.S. ethanol opens opportunities for EU member states to take advantage of affordable, low-carbon biofuels. The European Commission says it found no evidence warranting continuation of the duties and that their removal would not encourage ethanol dumping in the EU.

Renewable Fuels Association CEO Geoff Cooper says he looks forward to resuming more open ethanol trade with the EU. The duties have been in place since 2013.
