PRESS RELEASE - 9 April 2015: THE Biofuels Association of Australia (BAA) has slammed the Federal Government’s Energy White Paper (EWP) which fails to respond to climate change and our worsening fuel security position. “Instead of supporting ‘here and now solutions’ to reduce the carbon intensity of our fuels by promoting biofuels (like the rest of the OECD nations), Australia’s plan is to wait for the market to sort something out,” said Gavin Hughes, CEO of BAA.

Friday, 16 May 2014 13:38

The Biofuels Association of Australia (BAA) is deeply disappointed at the government's decision to abandon the commitments made to retain the effective excise free status of renewable biofuels until 2021. While supportive of the government's stance to save funds by removing subsidies for imported biodiesel that have already been subsidised in their country of origin, the BAA is most concerned how a complete U‐turn in policy will be interpreted by investors in any sector of the economy.

Texan Report underlines the need for an Aussie Biofuel Education
Tuesday, 29 April 2014 12:15

A report released by the Texas Tech University underlines the costs to NSW motorists for not choosing Ethanol blended fuels and points to the need to educate Australian motorists in the facts that American motorists have known for some years – E10 is a near perfect substitute for both regular and premium gasoline.

The report concludes that motorist's fears about ethanol blended fuels have caused them to choose higher priced Premium ULP causing them to waste an additional $331M (or 12.01 cents per litre(cpl)) on fuel between 2007 to 2013. Marketers have seized on this fear and leveraged the issue to improve wholesale margins on Premium fuels and increase profits.
