ePURE suspects circumvention of import duty on ethanol imports

ePURE, the European Renewable Ethanol Association, asks the European Commission to investigate if EU customs legislation is properly applied in Finland. Evidence from several sources indicates that ethanol blended with gasoline coming from the US and destined for the EU market will be classified as an ethanol blend with much lower import duties than denatured ethanol, creating unfair market situations and circumvention of import duties.
