APAC Biofuel Consulting


Released in April 2017, AUSTRALIAN BIOFUELS 2017 is APAC Biofuel Consultants (Ecco Consulting and EnergyQuest JV) latest report on the Australian bio-based diesel, ethanol and advanced biofuel industry.

AUSTRALIAN BIOFUELS 2017 analyses and asks the tough questions about the Australian biofuels industry.  Why the 90% fall in biodiesel demand in Australia in 2016?  Where are the government support mechanisms failing the industry? Is the industry in Australia sustainable when we see the fate of projects and plans over the last ten years?  

Indeed, this report is SPECIAL, providing for the first time, a summary of all the planned and operating ethanol and biodiesel plants/projects in Australia since 2006. Click here for APAC's MEDIA RELEASE, 4th May 2017.

AUSTRALIAN BIOFUELS 2017 is your pathway to understanding this tiny, yet very complex segment of the Australian transport fuel mix. Being independent, we can call and analyse the market as we see it. Don't be caught making uninformed decisions about your investment or policy direction.

Now in its eleventh year, the Report covers demand and supply, new projects, economics, mandates, excise, policy changes, aviation, international developments and more. It is Australia's only comprehensive and independent analysis of the Australian biofuel and advanced biofuel industries.
