The ICIS Ethyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (ETBE) report is published weekly in Europe

  • The report contains spot price assessments for the absolute price of ETBE, as well as its premium value over methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE)
  • Both of these prices are quoted on a FOB Amsterdam Rotterdam Antwerp basis
  • Europe depends on imports for a significant proportion of its supply and these factors mean that prices can fluctuate quite rapidly, all of which are recorded in the commentary
  • Accurate and objective coverage is reported after consulting a cross range of market sources
  • The report also covers the price of feedstock ethanol as well as that of MTBE, both of which are key ETBE price determinants
