U.S. sets preliminary antidumping duties on Argentine, Indonesian biodiesel
WASHINGTON, Oct 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. Commerce Department
on Monday made a preliminary finding imports of biodiesel from
Argentina and Indonesia were being dumped and set preliminary
antidumping duties on the products.
The department set antidumping duties ranging from 54.36
percent to 70.05 percent on biodiesel from Argentina, and 50.71

suspend the antidumping and related countervailing duty
investigations of biodiesel imports, and that the department is
working on possible suspension agreements.
