USDA leads ethanol industry trade mission to India

In Washington, a team of U.S. ethanol industry representatives led by USDA Undersecretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services Michael Scuse traveled to India last week to discuss opportunities for developing clean energy solutions, technologies and policies.

Seven representatives from the U.S. Grains Council , Growth Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association, as well as USDA, participated in the mission, aimed at strengthening the level of cooperation and coordination between the ethanol industries of the two countries.

During a series of meetings that involved ethanol producers, oil companies and government officials, the U.S. participants received an in-depth look at the local industry’s situation and outlook.  There were extensive discussions on India’s economy, political environment, energy sector, and the role of government policy as a driver of the ethanol industry’s growth.
