* Data include Hydro-diesel production

Nota Bene: Given the specific situation prevailing on the European market since many years, a number of installed biodiesel plants are not running since several years and shall be considered as long-term-out-of-production plants during the whole year 2017.
Consequently, a consistent share of the 21 million tonnes nominal installed capacities should be considered as idle capacity, i.e. not effectively able to start or operate any biodiesel production this year.
