If there’s a single takeaway from the trade missions to Mexico and Japan, it is that international markets remain open to dialogue with the United State in accessing U.S. ethanol. - Kelly Davis
(PRWEB) July 10, 2015
Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of nationally syndicated car-talk program “Bobby Likis Car Clinic,” shares the mic with Kelly Davis, Director of Regulatory Affairs, Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), on Saturday, July 11, 2015, at 10:41am ET.
Degreed in chemistry, a veteran of the grain processing industry and widely recognized as an expert on ethanol production for fuel, industrial and beverage purposes, Davis recently returned from trade missions to Mexico & Japan. These trade missions, coordinated through a joint trade promotion partnership between the RFA, U.S. Grains Council and Growth Energy, allowed delegates to meet with government officials and industry players to assess the markets regarding expansion of American-made ethanol imports to those countries.
On the Car Clinic globalcast on Saturday, Likis and Davis will dive into the particulars of the Japanese and Mexican fuel markets and the benefits of and obstacles to those countries embracing U.S. ethanol.
Davis previews, ““If there’s a single takeaway from the trade missions to Mexico and Japan, it is that international markets remain open to dialogue with the United State in accessing U.S. ethanol,” said Davis. “The next step for American producers is to determine the needs of each nation as it relates to the use of ethanol, bearing in mind the regulations already present. To be clear, there are many hurdles to jump in the coming years, but our delegation was encouraged by our meetings with officials in both countries.”
Reflects Likis, “I’ll also engage Kelly regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) right here in the U.S. and how the RFS helps ‘drive America’ with less expense at the pump and cleaner air.”
