Nov 13, 2013 - The Argentine association of biofuel makers Carbio has accused Spain of irregularly and arbitrarily limiting the access of Argentine biofuel companies to its market.
Despite the appeals of Argentina before the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the Spanish government did not include any Argentine company in the list of biofuel suppliers, Carbio said in a statement.
Carbio criticised the administrative reasons provided by the Spanish government for which the Argentine companies were not included in the list and the insufficient information on the ranking.
Last week, the Spanish Industry Ministry announced a list of 35 plants, which will be responsible for the supply of biodiesel in the next two years.
A total six Argentine, four Indonesian, two Malaysian and seven Spanish companies were not included in the list although their applications were approved in February.
