A major by-product of ethanol production will be the focus of an international conference next week in Indianapolis.
The U.S. Grains Council and USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service are co-sponsoring the International Distillers Grains Conference with approximately 140 major foreign buyers, nutritionists, and feed ingredient importers expected to attend. The meeting will be held October 19-21 at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.
Exports of DDGs expected to hit 3 million metric tons valued at an estimated $600 million this marketing year and next year they are projected to reach at least 4 million metric tons at $800 million, making this a major value-added commodity for the United States.
Registration for the conference is still open on-line at distillersgrainsconference.com.
