biofuel brokerage

The European biofuels business, since it beginnings in the 2000’s, has been in constant flux under influence of the ever-changing legislative environment for biofuels in every member state of the EU.

Managing risk of both agricultural and fossil fuel markets in the midst of changing legislations is a fine art mastered by fewer and fewer players.

The survivors are integrated agro-industrial commodity houses and end-users with blending obligations as well as waste-based biofuel entrepreneurs.

Global has been at the forefront of these developments and looks forward to new challenges ahead to grow together with its clients.

Our focus on:

  • awareness of legislative changes
  • client-margin orientation and
  • truly understanding the reason why clients are in the biofuels business

have resulted in long term broker – client relationships based on mutual trust.

We are proud to count the biggest names in the petroleum and agro-industrial business communities among our customers for many years.

global bio tour

Global Bio Tour – Biofuel professionals ride for charity

Each year on the last Monday of May, Global Bio Broker organizes the Global Bio Tour. The tour started off as a just for fun event, organized for a few clients who love to ride their bike.

It turned into an opportunity for many to meet other biofuel professionals in an informal setting and do some exercise and sight-seeing at the same time. It has become an annual industry event that attracts Global clients from all over Europe.

The tour is a fully organized day out with peers in the biofuels business, on a day when some major commodities exchanges are closed (USA Memorial Day). Combined with the goal of contributing a significant amount of support for a great charity has proven to be a success story.

Global Bio Tour contributions to the Ronald McDonald Huis Sophia Rotterdam have provided a lot of families the opportunity to be close to their child, at the most difficult of times in their young lives.
