Ethanol trade continues to be a bright spot

Global demand for US ethanol remains strong.

Cary Sifferath is the Vice President of the U.S. Grains Council. “That’s probably 35-to-40 percent of our work globally, working on developing markets for US ethanol,” he said.

More than 100 million gallons of US ethanol was exported in September, according to the Renewable Fuels Association. Canada continues to be the country’s biggest importer.

Speaking to Brownfield during the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention in Kansas City, Sifferath says Japan is a rapidly growing market.
