The General Index European Biofuels module provides price visibility for a range of biofuels markets.

GENERAL INDEX EXPERTISE

The GX European Biofuels module provides price visibility for a range of biofuels markets, some of which currently lack liquidity and transparency.

As the industry transitions to a more sustainable future, GX kicks off this new module with daily Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) aka Renewable Diesel production prices & daily biodiesel spot prices (covering a range of methyl esters).

Users of our HVO price data can compare production costs regionally. The HVO assessments allow market participants to observe how variations in facility size (based on actual projects announced) and adjustments to meet competing HVO customer demand impact price.

delivery and key prices

The data is published daily (subject to the General Index holiday calendar) and made available to its subscribers via direct data feeds and emails to its customers.

All prices are in USD/MT and normalised via internal calculations to reflect market value at close (1630 London).

Technical details can be found in the relevant factsheets.

Model A Max HVO

These indexes reflect a minimum cost price for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO aka Renewable Diesel) produced in North West Europe via the HEFA pathway. The refinery scenario modelled is "Max HVO". Total renewable product yield is 92% (80% HVO, 6% SAF, 3% Bio-Naphtha, and 3% Bio-LPG). It assumes a facility in Rotterdam with 2.7mn MT/annum total renewable product capacity. Feedstock is 100% Used Cooking Oil (UCO).
