The article reports that German biodiesel producers are claiming a drop of 30 to 40% in sales since a 9 euro cents per litre tax on the plant-based fuel was introduced at the start of 2007. The federal regenerative fuels association, BBK, says producers are losing 4 to 8 euro cents per litre, and this has led to a reduction of production capacity of 400,000 tonnes per year. The association says by autumn, 60% of growers could be insolvent.
