欧洲工业乙醇需求与价格大幅上升

中国石化新闻网 2020-03-24

中国石化新闻网讯 据ICIS网站3月19日消息 随着与疫情相关的消毒剂和清洁产品的需求飙升,欧洲工业乙醇的现货价格正在大幅上涨,市场正面临中断。

生物燃料生产商、杜松子酒蒸馏厂和香水制造商正转向乙醇生产,以帮助满足需求的激增。

法国两大乙醇生产商已证实,他们正在将燃料乙醇生产能力转向工业市场。

目前,意大利等依赖从海外进口原料的国家已获得供应,但由于物流方面的限制,这些国家可能面临短缺。

由于边境关闭或限制商业运输,卡车陆路运输也会受到延误。港口和英国等国缺乏储存空间,也限制了库存。

英国现货价格为900英镑/吨,处于季度合同结算范围的顶端。

与此同时,人们预计,随着欧洲各国对人员流动实施更多限制,燃料乙醇的需求可能大幅下降。一些乙醇生产商计划从燃料转向工业级乙醇。

Europe industrial ethanol demand, prices spike as coronavirus disrupts market

Spot prices for Europe industrial ethanol are spiking and the market is facing disruption as demand soars for disinfectant and cleaning products linked to coronavirus.

Biofuel producers, gin distilleries and perfume manufacturers are switching to ethanol production to help meet the spike in demand.

France's two largest ethanol producers have confirmed they are redirecting fuel ethanol production capacity into the industrial markets

Countries such as Italy which rely on feedstock imports from overseas are supplied for now, but could face shortages due to logistical constraints.

Land transport by truck is also subject to delays as borders are closed or restricted to commercial traffic. A lack of storage space at ports and in countries like the UK has also limited stockpiling.

UK spot prices of £900/tonne have been heard, at the top end of the quarterly contract settlement range.

Meanwhile, there is an expectation that demand for fuel ethanol could fall dramatically as more restrictions on movement of people fall into place across Europe. Some ethanol producers plan to switch from fuel to industrial grade ethanol.
