Ethanol industry pledges to challenge the EU tariff

By Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy | February 19, 2013

The European Commission is officially imposing an $83.03 per metric ton tariff on U.S. ethanol entering the European Union.  Commenting on the publishing of the decision, the Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy issued the following statement:

“This tariff is outrageous and based on absolutely no facts or evidence of harm.  An extensive investigation was conducted and there was no proof to substantiate the European Union’s protectionist claims of dumping. Imposing a country wide anti-dumping tariff is unprecedented and unfounded.  This is blatant protectionism at its worst. This is absolutely not the final chapter. We will challenge this policy in every manner possible.”
