Biofuels production

Global biofuels production rose by 2.6% in 2016, well below the 10-year average of 14.1%, but faster than in 2015 (0.4%)

The United States (+1930 thousand tonnes of oil equivalent, or ktoe) provided the largest increment.

In 2016 global ethanol production increased by only 0.7%, partly due to falling production in Brazil. Biodiesel production rose 6.5% with Indonesia providing more than half of the increment (+1149 ktoe).
