ABSTRACT
The article reports that it has been a difficult nine months for European bioethanol producers, and opinions are mixed about the market's prospects. Producers have had a hard time making any profit because of growing production costs, the burden of which they have struggled to pass on to consumers. It is stated that ethanol prices are largely at the mercy of two key factors: imports and raw materials.
