Weekly ethanol exports notch new high


U.S. ethanol exports set a new benchmark since weekly data tracking began in May.

Renewable Fuels Association CEO Geoff Cooper says the average of 8.2 million gallons a day was nearly 60 percent higher than the previous week.

“We’ve not been seeing export numbers from the Energy Information Administration for very long, they just started publishing those on a weekly basis earlier this year. But last week’s export number was the highest since they began reporting that data, and I think that bodes very well for us.”

He tells Brownfield the rise in ethanol exports is typical for this time of year, but some of the markets are not.
