Review requested of Argentina's biodiesel industry

The National Biodiesel Board Fair Trade Coalition has submitted comments for the record on how the U.S. Department of Commerce should conduct recently initiated changed circumstances reviews of U.S. duties on Argentine biodiesel imports. The Coalition’s comments state, “Commerce must conduct a rigorous, comprehensive review of all relevant facts, and not limit its consideration to the limited facts and narrow time period showcased by the Government of Argentina in its requests for reviews.” The Commerce Department imposed countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders in January and April 2018, following investigations that found massively subsidized and dumped biodiesel imports from Argentina had significantly injured U.S. biodiesel producers. However, recently, the Commerce Department issued a changed circumstances review on the actions. The Commerce Department invited the comments following a November 19 meeting with National Biodiesel Board representatives.
