14:58 | ProAgro

PROAGRO Information Company has published new market study


This new research contains a detailed analysis of the main development prospects of Ukrainian biodiesel fuel market. It provides full information about biodiesel production expectations, growth and limiting factors of market development, as well as economic analysis of biodiesel production development, development of feedstock market and its appropriateness to potential industrial needs. Special parts illustrate situation with state regulation, raw materials and biodiesel market pricing. The products quality and standardization questions are discussed as well. Business development prospects and opportunities for organization of biodiesel production are estimated, including export prospects.

Today the interest of foreign investors to biodiesel production development in Ukraine is high. However the objective reasons restrain so far the development of this market in our country. But in spite of lack of the government support and relatively high prices of feedstock the biodiesel production in Ukraine is developing and first of all the development takes place in the field of agricultural producers’ self-sufficiency with the alternative types of fuel. With the growth of prices on energy products and extension of domestic supply the numbers of biodiesel producers will increase.
