The article focuses on the biofuels industry in Europe as of May 2006. Experts predict that Europe's biofuels production will triple to more than 15m tonne/year by 2009 as suppliers carry out major expansion projects across the continent. This increase in demand is stemming from the European Commission legislation requiring oil companies to blend 5.75 percent of biofuels into transport gasoline by 2010. Major Spanish bioethanol projects are listed.
