8 Countries that Produce the Most Biofuels in the World

The first two countries on our list of 8 countries that produce the most biofuels in the world account for 69% of the global biofuels production. The latest British Petroleum (BP) report Statistical Review of World Energy, which provides data for 2014, estimates world’s biofuels production at  70,792,000 tons, which represent an increase of 7.4% compared to the previous year.

Production growth in Asia, where, among top producers, only South Korea recorded decreased output, while other countries saw the increase as high as 40%, greatly contributed to the overall output boost. North American states also increased biofuels production, while in Europe only Austria had a significant output drop. The country which saw the greatest decline in the biofuels productivity was Australia, which gave almost 17% less biofuels compared to 2013.

Unlike our previous list of countries that produce the most butter in the world today’s ranking of countries that produce the most biofuels, which is based on BP’s report, is not dominated by European states.

8. The Netherlands

Production: 1,145,000 tons

We start our list with the Netherlands, which adopted EU directive to increase the share of renewable energy to 20% by 2020. Between 2010 and 2014 the country almost tripled biofuels production, and the output of  1,145,000 tons accounted for 2% of the global biofuels production.
