Last week, our Senior Vice President of Global Markets Craig Willis joined a tour of Iowa’s corn ethanol industry with fuel retailers from Mexico who are here to learn about the American ethanol experience. From seed to biofuel, these retailers will take back lessons learned as they move closer and closer to a nationwide E10 fuel blend.
These tours are an invaluable opportunity to impart tried-and-true wisdom on fuel retailers and regulators from other countries who are trying to increase the amount of fuel in their fuel supply. As we’ve learned over decades in the U.S., proper regulations, infrastructure, and marketing are all central to successfully integrating ethanol fuel into the fuel mix.
