FAME 0 Biodiesel Barge FOB ARA Premium
This cash assessment reflects the value of a barge of fatty acid methyl ester biodiesel with a maximum cold filter plugging point of 0 degrees Celsius loading FOB ARA 7-to-28 days forward from the date of publication. This product is the most common single-counted summer grade biodiesel blend used within diesel fuel to meet European renewables mandates and as such acts as a reference for summer-grade biodiesel. It typically trades at a differential to low-sulfur gasoil futures and assessments are published as both a differential and a flat price. This assessment represents the differential. The balmo and monthly assessments are Quantum's assessed value of swaps contracts that are financially settled against Argus Media's average monthly assessment published on the calendar month in question. The swaps assessments roll monthly on the 1st of each month. So, on 31 May, M+2 represents July loading. On 1 June M+2 represents August loading.
