India’s ethanol blending mandate opens import window to supply chemical demand

July 18, 2016 |

Compared to less than less than 62,000 cu m imported during 2013/14, the USDA is estimating imports of 440,000 cu m this year and 600,000 cu m next year. Already this year imports have soared, with 102,597 cu m heading to India from the US between February and April.
