Mackenzie Boubin, Director of Global Ethanol Export Development for the U.S. Grains Council, gave an update on the outlook for ethanol exports at the recent American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) annual conference in Minneapolis.

“The United States represents over half of the ethanol production in the world,” said Boubin. “For our marketing year, we’re over one billion gallons. So we take about ten percent every year of the U.S. ethanol industry and we send it overseas.”

This marketing year, Boubin says, exports are down about 200 million gallons from last year, mainly due to Brazil and China. “Despite those two markets, the fact we’re diversifying more than ever, nearly 100 countries are taking our product, shows that we really do have that competitive advantage,” she said.

Boubin talks about the most important countries right now for U.S. ethanol in her presentation.
