European Ethanol Producers Set Up Ethanol REACH Association

May 16, 2008

The Biofuels International website reports that leading ethanol manufacturers in Europe (Abengoa Bioenergy, CropEnergies, INEOS, Royal Nedalco and Tereos) have come together to form an Ethanol REACH Association. This is in response to a legal obligation for the companies to register ethanol under the European Union’s (EU) Registration Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. The Association would enable the joint submission of a high quality dossier for registration. Ethanol manufacturers (EU and non-EU), importers, and other entities that have interest in the registration of ethanol can join the Association..
