On May 15, Argentina launched a World Trade Organization claim against the European Union and its member states on biodiesel importation. Argentina claimed the EU, Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the UK implemented the 2009 Renewable Directive that gave preference to European transportation fuels. The South American country and the EU have 60 days to reach a settlement; should no settlement be reached, Argentina may request the formation of a WTO dispute panel.
