The lawsuits and complaints in the green car industry are flying about non-stop these days. Porsche vs. London. Tesla vs. Fisker. Michael Papp's troubles. State-based emissions and fuel economy regulations in the U.S. Here's yet another to add to the list: The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) vs. American biodiesel producers.
"Illegal concurrence" and "subsidized dumping" is what the European Biodiesel Board (EBB) calls US biodiesel imports into the European Union, backing up a similar statement made by Spanish producers. According to the EBB, Europe is importing half a million tons of U.S.-made B99 (700,000 million tons according to other estimates). The U.S. biofuel has a much lower price than that made in Europe.
