German Jan-May Biodiesel sales rise 12.9% on year, ethanol sales up 7.6%

January-May biodiesel demand in Germany gained more ground than both diesel and ethanol, rising 12.9% on the year to 946,224 mt, the latest data from German export control agency BAFA show.

This came despite diesel consumption falling 4.1% on the year to 15.1 million mt. However, in May, biodiesel sales rose 3.5% month on month to 204,937 mt, while diesel sales fell 3.1% to 3.1 million mt.

This took the biodiesel incorporation rate to 6.4% on a volume basis, from 5.4% a year earlier. The biodiesel incorporation rate for May alone rose to 6.7%, up from 5.3% in May 2017.

Similarly ethanol sales grew 7.6% year on year to 442,267 mt in January-May while gasoline consumption fell 0.5% to 7.45 million mt.

This brought the ethanol incorporation rate to 5.9% on a volumetric basis, from 5.5% a year earlier. The incorporation rate for May rose to 6.2%, from 5.8% a year earlier.

These moves reflected the nature of the German biofuels mandate, for which blending obligations are set using a greenhouse gas savings target, in contrast to other countries, which have volume-based mandates.

Germany´s biofuels mandate is 4% on a GHG savings basis.
