Updated to Q2 2016
A drama-laced second quarter of 2016 saw fuel ethanol prices climb fairly unrelentingly until early June, when they came off the boil.
Opening the second quarter in mid-€400s/cbm FOB Rotterdam, by early June they had shot up around 30%, threatening to scrape €600/cbm.
Lighting the fire beneath prices were a series of production outages linked to Spain-based Abengoa’s financial crisis.
Its Salamanca plant in Spain was shut for an unspecified length of time. Soon after, Abengoa closed its Lacq, France plant after an undisclosed incident, with no clear picture of when it was expected to return to action.
On 11 May, Europe’s largest ethanol plant at Rotterdam filed for bankruptcy, removing around 380,000 tonnes/year of ethanol capacity from the market. Hot on the heels of this, Germany-based CropEnergies said its Ensus, UK plant would re-open in July at the latest.
Prices cooled in June to the puzzlement of many market players, with some pointing to signs that the usual uptick in demand for the summer driving season had yet to emerge. On 17 June, Belgium’s Alcogroup announced it had signed a deal to buy the Rotterdam ethanol plant.
At the end of June, values were still around 22% higher than the start of Q2.
Europe seemed all but closed off to other regions after some product had found its way over from the US in early 2016. Doubt was thrown up this when a surprise EU court ruling on 9 June annulled anti-dumping duties against five US ethanol producers. The Commission had two months to appeal.
