news item image
Germany exported around 1.3 million tonnes of biodiesel in the first half year of this year, according to figures published by the German Federal Statistical Office.
Imports to the country amounted to a total of 755,539 tonnes.
The Netherlands, the principal EU marketplace for biodiesel, continued to be the primary trading partner, accounting for 40% and 48% of total exports and imports respectively.
Imports more than doubled after having declined considerably in the previous year. According to Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft, larger shipments also came from Belgium, Malaysia and Poland.
While imports from Belgium also more than doubled, imports coming directly from Malaysia decreased around 17%.

The main recipient countries of German biodiesel also were EU countries (76%), headed by the Netherlands, Belgium and Poland. The most important non-EU country was the US.
The country took fourth place in the first half of 2022, partly because imports increased 28% year-on-year to just below 91,000 tonnes.
