German biodiesel usage is on the decline in 2015. Baseding on figures just released by the Federal Workplace for Economic Matters as well as Export Control (BAFA), it dropped particularly greatly in September.

At around 165,000 heaps (roughly 50 million gallons), the use of biodiesel in blends was down around 15 percent from the exact same month the previous year. By contrast, demand for oil diesel is vigorous, increasing 1 percent in the wake of reduced petroleum rates, according to Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft mbH (AMI). Due to this, the blending quota of biodiesel dropped to 5.15 percent, from 5.85 percent this August and also merely much less than 6 percent in September 2014. This is the most affordable level seen considering that April 2013. For many years as a whole, the mixing quota of biodiesel till September this year amounted to 6 percent, down 0.5 percentage factors from the year-ago degree.

September intake of bioethanol declined from the previous month, but was steady as compared to the exact same month the previous year. The blending quota saw a mild surge to 6.5 percent due to a decline in gas usage.
