Abstract This report reviews whether the grain market and grain price can be stabilised by the variation of the use of grain in the EU-27's production of bioethanol. The time horizon of this study is 2020, whereby account is taken of the minimum 10% obligation for biofuel use in the EU-27. An economic computational model was used to develop a baseline scenario and a number of alternative scenarios for 2020. The alternative scenarios assume the use of a larger or smaller quantity of grain than in the base scenario for the EU-27's production of bioethanol. This variation depends on the availability of grain as compared to the baseline scenario. The effect of this variation on the grain price is then examined.
