The European fuel ethanol market has seen a steady increase in both production and consumption over the past few years, and is forecasted to grow with wider adoption of biofuels across Europe.
This week’s chart comes from data shared in ePURE’s report Updated for 2018: Overview of biofuel policies and markets across the EU-28. The chart outlines the top 10 countries for ethanol production capacity. 18 countries have installed capacity to produce bioethanol, with a combined total capacity of 8,901mn litres a year. France is Europe’s leading market and hosts 23% of European biofuel production capacity.
