“The global appetite for ethanol has never been higher,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Countries around the globe are recognizing the significant role biofuels play in achieving their economic and climate goals. At Growth Energy, we are working to keep this incredible momentum going so the global ethanol outlook continues to flourish in 2019.”
“We have seen impressive growth in biofuels markets abroad over the past three years, especially in a number of key markets,” said Growth Energy Senior Vice President of Global Markets Craig Willis. “With the highest national blend rate in the world Brazil, in particular, has seen record-breaking imports on the year. We look forward to growing the opportunities for ethanol producers and farmers through continued engagement with key partners like Canada on biofuels policy while working to reduce trade barriers in China and the EU.”
