Canada to remain a top importer of U.S. ethanol
The CEO of the U.S. Grains Council expects Canada to remain a top customer of U.S. ethanol.
Ryan LeGrand tells Brownfield the Canadian government has adopted a low-carbon fuel standard with ethanol at the center of the fuel mix.
“Many provinces up there are going to E10 and even E15 blends.”
And he says Canada’s domestic ethanol production is not projected to grow.
“So while their demand is growing, their production is not. And they are going to need to import more and more each year. And as their neighbor to the south with great links on rail and even truck, the United States stands to benefit from that growing demand for ethanol in Canada.”
The Renewable Fuels Association says Canada has been the top destination for U.S. ethanol for 26 months in a row.
