The EC bioethanol blend mandate policy: its effect on ACP sugar trade and potential interaction with EPA policies
Sukati, M.A. (2013) The EC bioethanol blend mandate policy: its effect on ACP sugar trade and potential interaction with EPA policies. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The study aim was to determine effects of the EC bioethanol blend mandate policy and its potential interaction with the EPA policies on EU/ACP countries. The research analysis focussed on welfare outcomes, changes in trade balance and output of bioethanol crops commodities due to these policies. Emphasis of our analysis was placed on sugar given the economic importance of this commodity to many ACP member states. Absence of an EU bioethanol partial equilbrium model means we had to design one from certain assumptions. One of the assumptions was that subsidies support EU bioethanol production such that just enough is produced to meet the 5.75% and 10% EC blend mandate requirements. For this reason, EU bioethanol production did not affect transport fuel demand and prices.
