Exports of bioethanol increases developing in German market

December 29, 2004

Abengoa Bioenergy has executed in December 2004 its second contract of supply with Ruhr-Petrol, a trading company based in Germany, for the delivery of bioethanol to the refinery of Miro in Karlsruhe, Germany, during 2005. The bioethanol will be used for the manufacturing of ETBE.

The bioethanol is produced and supplied by Bioetanol Galicia, complying with the strict quality requirements from the refinery. The contract is for 8000 ton of bioethanol to be supplied in three deliveries in January, February and March 2005. The bioethanol will be shipped from the port of La Coruña to a terminal in Rotterdam, from where it will be delivered by Ruhr-Petrol to the refinery by barge.

Abengoa Bioenergy’s production plants in Spain, Ecocarburantes Españoles and Bioetanol Galicia, have an excess capacity to produce cereal based bioethanol to be exported to European countries, which would get it to market more rapidly and cheaper than any other source, developing the necessary infrastructures for the expansion of biofuels before the start-up of new production plants in those markets with a growing demand of bioethanol.

Abengoa is expanding its activities in Europe by increasing the supply of bioethanol to key customers abroad, and boosting its export activity in German market, competing with local producers and imports from third countries, by means of a competitive production capability derived from the improvements made in the production process and from the efficient operation of the plants by Abengoa Bioenergy. Another important factors in the competitiveness of Abengoa Bioenergy which has been proven in the biofuel market are the reliability, flexibility and quality of the supply.
