As Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) president Bob Dinneen was in Seville, Spain talking about American ethanol in the world market, the organization released a new report on rising U.S. ethanol exports.
“The Paradox of Rising U.S. Ethanol Exports: Increased Market Opportunities at the Expense of Enhanced National Energy Security?” highlights how the nation quickly evolving from a net importer of ethanol into a net exporter, sending our home-grown fuel to countries like Canada and the Netherlands, and even Brazil and OPEC nations in Middle East.
The question becomes, do we want to export our biofuels and the benefits they provide, or do we want to use them here at home to help secure our energy future? Or both?
RFA’s Matt Hartwig discusses the issue in this edition of “The Ethanol Report.”
