On the Ethanol Front the first dairy-based ethanol plant in the US will break ground later this year. The Michigan Milk Producers Association and Canadian Dairy Distillery are partnering to turn a dairy byproduct, milk permeate, into ethanol for biofuels sector. Dairy Distillery, CEO Omid McDonald said he helped create a method to process milk sugar into carbon-neutral vodka that is marketed as VodKow.’Very early on in the project, I get to learn how there’s an imbalance in dairy where people are drinking less fluid milk and eating more cheese and yogurt.” There’s a lot of lactose leftover and different byproducts he says. Today is Last Trading Day in June ethanol futures and there were no trades or open interest in ethanol futures.
Have A Great Trading Day!
