A trade delegation from southeast Asia took a closer look at corn ethanol production in North Dakota this past week. The 20-member trade team toured a Buffalo, North Dakota farm and the Spiritwood ethanol plant on Thursday. North Dakota Corn Utilization Council Executive Director Jean Henning says the group got to see the process and learn about Dried Distillers Grains. Henning also says countries like Vietnam have market potential for U.S. ethanol. “Currently, Vietnam isn’t using corn-based ethanol. We’re trying to sell them on the benefits of corn ethanol versus sugarcane ethanol.”
