About Us


EFOA, the European Fuel Oxygenates Association, is the voice of the European fuel ether industry. 

EFOA brings together the European producers of fuel ethers MTBE (methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether), bio-ETBE (Ethyl tert-butyl ether), TAME (Tertiary amyl methyl ether) and TAEE (tertiary-amyl ethyl ether). 

EFOA considers that ethers have an important role to play in creating a cleaner environment based on sustainable transport fuels. This is reflected in our mission: EFOA is dedicated to the promotion of ethers as fuel components towards a cleaner and sustainable future.

Since its foundation in 1985, EFOA (a sector group of Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council) has been dedicated to the responsible usage of ethers in gasoline based on the application of science. EFOA actively promotes constructive co-operation with all stakeholders: regulators, legislators, industry, NGOs etc.

EFOA currently comprises 7 full member companies which represent the majority of the EU ether production capacity. Please click here to learn more about EFOA's members fields of activity.
