USGC pushing hard to supply fuel ethanol to fill India’s supply gap

March 26, 2018 |

In India, the US Grains Council is stumping for ethanol market access to supply the country’s E10 blending mandate that it has failed to source locally. The USGC’s local representative says that landed US ethanol would cost about 45 cents per liter compared to 63 cents for domestic ethanol. The country doesn’t currently allow imports for fuel blending but does import about 40 million liters per year of US ethanol for industrial use. The USGC suggests sourcing what it can domestically and then allowing imports to fill the gap in order to reach the E10 mandate compared to the 4% expected for this season.
