The European Biodiesel Board moves focus to anti-dumping case
This is after its success in identifying evidence of fraudulent practices and stopping the suspected re-exporting of Indonesian biodiesel through the Port of Hainan in China.
The EBB’s attention on unfair trade can now be fully focused on the investigation into dumping of Chinese biodiesel.
The EBB president Dickon Posnett said: “Our European businesses have been suffering severely from unfairly priced Chinese product and EBB is determined to defend the biodiesel industry’s interests and create a fair trading environment. The anti-circumvention case has done what we hoped it would. T
“he fact that the action immediately stopped around 470,000t of suspect shipments from Hainan is revealing, but now we plan to put all our energy into prosecuting the AD case to get measures in place as soon as possible.”
The European Commission is continuing the anti-circumvention investigation and will be assessing the latest developments and the public interest. Meanwhile the registration of imports remains in place.
