The article reports that Ensus Ltd. has temporarily shut down its bioethanol plant at Wilton on Teesside, in north-east England, due to competition for U.S. imports and regulatory delays. Ensus says demand for European-produced bioethanol has been affected by slow implementation of the European Union's (EU) Renewable Energy Directive and delays to Voluntary Sustainability Scheme approvals over the past six months, which has caused market uncertainty for European producers.
