LONDON (ICIS)--German bioethanol producer CropEnergies expects its fiscal 2011/2012 sales to increase by up to 21%, it said on Wednesday.
CropEnergies's optimistic outlook came even as Germany's drivers remain unwilling to accept 10% bioethanol blended gasoline (E10), which has been approved for sale at the country’s pumps since 1 January.
CropEnergies said sales for the fiscal year ending 29 February 2012 should reach up to €570m ($826m), compared with €473m in the 2010/2011 fiscal year.
Sales for the first three months ended 31 May 2011 were up by 41% to €132m, mainly due to higher plant utilisation rates, CropEnergies said.
