Italy - Biofuels 2011
December 29, 2011
USDA/FAS GAIN report IT 1160
The Italian biofuels industry is slowly developing to meet the EU’s 2020 mandatory 10-percent biofuel use in transportation fuels. However, lack of support from the government, stiff competition from South America, and a complicated and uncertain EU and Italian legislative framework are severely hampering the industry’s growth. Italian biodiesel output is expected to fall some 32 percent to about 500,000 MT in 2011 while the bioethanol fuel production is still not relevant.
