Biogasoline

Bioeconomy

Data on consumption, production, transformation and supply of biogasoline for energy purposes. Data expressed in thousand of metric tons.

Consumption data are broken down by sector (e.g. agriculture, forestry and fishing, food and tobacco, households, etc.).

Biogasoline (AL), SIEC code 5210: Liquid fuels derived from biomass and used in spark-ignition internal combustion engines. Remark: Common examples are: bioethanol (including both hydrous and anhydrous ethanol); biomethanol; biobutanol; bio ETBE (ethyl-tertio-butyl-ether); and bio MTBE (methyl-tertio-butyl-ether).

Biogasoline may be blended with petroleum gasoline or used directly in engines. The blending may take place in refineries or at or near the point of sale.

The consumption of the portion of biogasoline which is blended should also be reported under ‘Of which biogasoline (ZG)’.

The UNSD Annual Questionnaire on Energy Statistics (the “Questionnaire”) is the primary source of information for the UNSD Energy Statistics Database and contributes to the Energy Statistics Yearbook, the Energy Balances and the Electricity Profiles publications. The Energy Balances present energy data in a format showing an overall picture of energy production, trade, conversion and consumption for energy products utilized in the country, while Electricity Profiles contains detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant inputs and efficiencies.
