US Exports Record Volume Of DDGS

As the US ethanol sector continues to expand, the industry is producing record volumes of DDGS which need to find a home.

The industry exported a record 5.64 MMT of DDGS in 2009, up 24% on the previous (and also then a record) year of 2008.

That quantity is a more than fivefold increase on what was being exported just five years ago.

Mexico was the number one destination last year taking 1.5 MMT, with Canada in second slot importing just over 800,000 MT of US distillers grains.
