The main reason for these previsions is the 10 percent biofuel blend that the EU dictated as mandatory for 2020. Although a lot has been said about imports, the estimates are that only a 20 percent of these biofuels will be imported from third countries. In general terms, the EU15 (the "Western countries") will grow less, an expected 9.9 percent. The EU15 (the "Eastern countries" plus Malta and Cyprus) are expected to grow a 24.9 percent. Finally the latest additions to the EU, Bulgaria and Romania, are the countries that will increase production most significantly, an expected 71.8 percent.
