German biodiesel consumption remains unchanged

news item image
New figures showed that there was a slight decline of 1% to 2.516 million tonnes of biodiesel (from 2.560 million tonnes in 2021) recorded for the 2022 calendar year in Germany.
By contrast, the use of bioethanol in blends increased 3% from 1.153 million tonnes to 1.186 million tonnes.
The preliminary statistics for 2022 published by the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA), showed an incorporation rate of 7.2% for biodiesel and 7% for bioethanol.
Total consumption in Germany in 2022 amounted to 34.7 million tonnes of diesel (B7) and approximately 17 million tonnes of petrol (E5/E10).
This meant that the total consumption was at the previous year's level.
The Union zur Förderung von Oel- und Proteinpflanzen eV (UFOP) pointed out that raising the greenhouse gas quota obligation from 6% to 7% the previous year did not lead to an increase in biofuels consumption because trading in greenhouse gas reduction quotas and the increased efficiency of biofuels used in reducing greenhouse gas emission offset additional demand.
