The Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy will fight "in every manner possible" the EU's imposition of an anti-dumping tariff on U.S. ethanol, the groups said in a joint statement. The EU's countrywide 9.5% levy on U.S. ethanol is "blatant protectionism at its worst," the statement said. A U.S. trade official is also dismayed by the EU's decision, saying the U.S. trade office has "serious concerns about a number of procedural and methodological irregularities that took place during the final stages of the investigation."
