RSO prices remain the cheapest soft oil in Europe. However we note that premium in RME biodiesel are showing $150/mt backwardation to Q2? (+690 for Feb and +542 over ICE Gasoil for Apr). You would think this is an hallucination! No it isn't as Germany most recently announced that Brown Grease as a feedstock would no longer be accepted as advanced under RED rules - so back to square one.

Bean oil still remains way too expensive matching Sunflower oil despite ongoing harvest in Brazil and strong pressures on South America premiums.
