(Reuters) - The European Union court has dropped antidumping duties on imports of ethanol from the United States, ending a years-long dispute between the two countries, the European General Court said in a ruling on Thursday.

The decision affects imports by four U.S. producers: Patriot Renewable Fuels LLC, Plymouth Energy Co LLC, Poet LLC and Platinum Ethanol LLC, it said in the ruling.

Duties of $83.03 per metric ton were slapped on imports in February 2013.

The European Union has about two months to file an appeal.
