U.S. Ethanol Industry Praises India on Achieving Blending Target

The U.S. Grains Council, Growth Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association congratulated India for recently achieving its ethanol fuel blending target of 10 percent, five months ahead of schedule. The three groups issued the statement ahead of India’s upcoming 2023 AutoExpo, one of Asia’s largest automotive trade shows that’s expected to welcome more than 115,000 visitors to New Delhi next week. The U.S. Grains Council, Growth Energy and RFA will all be on-site at the trade show.
