New information about global market development efforts for U.S. ethanol and the benefits of the biofuel to global customers is now available online at www.grains.org.
The United States is the world’s low-cost ethanol producer and captured more than 65 percent of global ethanol trade in the 2017/2018 marketing year.
The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and its partners in the ethanol, corn and sorghum industries started promoting ethanol in 2014, quickly expanding the intensity and geographic scope, which has contributed to a rapid increase in overall U.S. ethanol exports.
To make ethanol program information, resources and updates more easily accessible for stakeholders and members, the Council has expanded its web presence for ethanol, highlighting many of the important components of is ethanol efforts.
