E101: A Watershed Summer for Ethanol
In the last few years, the ethanol industry has been through a lot. From promised E15 expansion and small refinery waivers through a global pandemic that cratered driving demand through today’s energy scarcity that has prompted the Biden administration to expand E15 availability during the summer months once again.
Though demand is certainly looking up for ethanol, there are risks too as corn and other commodity grains rise in price. And at the same time, legislative uncertainty looms.
Today, DTN Staff reporter Todd Neeley joins us to discuss what we can expect to see in terms of ethanol news and announcements during this summer driving season, and what that means for corn and ethanol demand.
We’ll dig into the potential impact of pending state-level action, what the impact of global demand and alternative markets might be, and what the EPA might be thinking as it looks to a less certain future of the RFS. Plus, an update on how all of these factors may impact other parts of the ag sector.
