U.S. Ethanol Exports Down, DDG Export Up

While year-to-date U.S. ethanol exports are down 30% than a year ago, exports of U.S. distillers grains have increased, according to an article by Ethanol Producer (http://bit.ly/…).

U.S. ethanol exports decreased by a third from January to February, with a total of 42.5 million gallons of denatured and undenatured (non-beverage) ethanol. According to Ann Lewis, research analyst for the Renewal Fuels Association, U.S. monthly ethanol exports have only been this low once in the last two years. But although exports were down, the U.S. was once again a net exporter in January and February.

Export of distillers grains grew by 6% from January to February at a total of nearly 618,000 metric tons. Lewis said that total is similar to average monthly distillers grains exports in 2012. The largest destination for those exports was China, who received 148,256 metric tons, nearly a quarter of the U.S. DDG export total. Mexico, Turkey, South Korea and Vietnam received the remainder of those exports.
