Argus Biofuels

An Argus market service, published daily 

Argus RME price

Argus spot price assessments for Renewable Energy Directive (RED) FAME 0 and RED RME are used by exchanges to settle contracts.

The Argus Biofuels publication includes prices for Renewable RED compliant ethanol, as well as daily differentials between benchmark Argus gasoline and ethanol prices. The report also covers the US Gulf coast and Asia-Pacific ethanol markets.

Argus Biofuels features daily prices and market analysis for waste-derived biodiesel UCOME and TME, and shows daily crude rapeseed oil prices (fob Dutch mill).

And a separate RSO midday report gives early price indications, based on actual transaction data for crude rapeseed oil, and features the previous day’s biodiesel price assessments.

The report lists other relevant feedstock prices for the biofuels industry, such as Asia-Pacific palm oil and soybean oil prices.

Argus Biofuels shows daily price indications for the main grades of US biofuels, and features a weekly market wrap for South American markets.

Argus uses a market-appropriate methodology, developed in consultation with market participants, to ensure clarity and the delivery of robust prices. The Argus biodiesel price has become the index assessment for the European market as a result.

In addition, Argus Direct features key information for users, such as a bulletin board showing biodiesel deals completed in the trading window, refinery capacity utilisation data for a number of European countries and a breakdown of biofuel and renewable energy legislation across the EU.
