HOUSTON (ICIS)--Brazil's anhydrous ethanol prices remained on a downtrend in the last week of July on continued supply pressure, research group CEPEA said on Tuesday.

CEPEA assessed anhydrous ethanol prices at Brazilian reais (R) 1.2697/litre ($2.36/gal, €0.51/litre) in the week that ended on 27 July, down by 0.7% from R1.2789/litre a week earlier.

Hydrous ethanol prices remained steady at R1.0592/litre, the research group said.

Brazil uses hydrous ethanol as a standalone fuel in flexible-fuel vehicles (FFVs), while anhydrous ethanol is blended in gasoline at a mandated 20%.

CEPEA prices are ex-tank and do not include taxes.
