European Union Market for Biofuels

(2012 and 2020 estimate)


Biodiesel Use in Europe

The market size for biodiesel in the EU was 10 million metric tons per year in 2012. This is likely to increase to approximately 21 million metric tons by 2020, according to Kaidi Finland, a company making 2nd generation biodiesel from wood-based biomass.

First generation biofuels are those derived from food crops.  Second generation biofuels are made from the non-food parts of plants.
