The U.S. shipped 58.8 million gallons of ethanol in March, up 38% from February, with Canada, Brazil and the United Arab Emirates the leading destinations, writes Geoff Cooper, vice president of research and analysis at the Renewable Fuels Association. The U.S. imported 52.7 million gallons of ethanol in March, more than double the amount in February, with Brazil directly accounting for 33.5 million gallons and the Caribbean Basin Initiative nations Jamaica, El Salvador and Costa Rica supplying the remainder, Cooper notes. U.S. exports of distillers dried grains with solubles declined 4% from February to 591,688 metric tons in March, with China again the primary destination, Cooper notes.
