Canada looking to slap tariffs on ethanol imports following 2018 record

April 8, 2019 |

In Washington, DTN reports that Canada’s ambassador to the US says his country is preparing additional tariffs on imports from its southern neighbor for a wide variety of products that could include ethanol. A 45-day consultation period will be held after the proposal is announced to see which products will impact Canada the least but hurt the US the most. Canada’s Western Producer magazine reports that US ethanol exports to Canada rose 7% in 2018 to a record of 1.32 billion liters against its 2.25 billion liters of demand for E5 blending.
