Biodiesel Industries

Europe is a first-mover and leader in biofuel legislation and in the production and consumption of biofuel. Biofuel policies are specified by each member states according to country specific requirements and aligned to the directives specified by the EU commission. Biodiesel has been produced on an industrial scale in the European Union since 1992, largely in response to positive signals from the EU institutions. Today, there are approximately 120 plants in the EU producing up to 6.1 million tons of biodiesel annually. These plants are mainly located in Germany, Italy, Austria, France and Sweden.

Specific legislation to promote and regulate the use of biodiesel is in force in various countries including Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden. The EU has also published strict guidelines in compliance with CEN Standardization (EN14214) in order to insure quality and performance. By 2020, the EU aims to have 10% of the transport fuel of every EU country come from renewable sources such as biofuels. Fuel suppliers are also required to reduce the greenhouse gas intensity of the EU fuel mix by 6% by 2020 in comparison to 2010.
