Saudi Arabia tempers hostility to ethanol

April 2012
Western Farm Press Exclusive Insight;4/11/2012, p11
The article discusses the cooperation of Saudi Arabia with the U.S. ethanol industry to satisfy feed demand with ethanol coproduct distiller's dried gains as of April 2012. Efforts were launched to expand market access for U.S. dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS), by the U.S. Grains Council, which has been operating in Saudi Arabia. DDGS has been included in the feed ingredient subsidy list, which would mean financial support for importers.
