US Grains Council promoting ethanol in South Korea

In South Korea, recently the US Grains Council attended the Busan International Motor Show, where Haksoo Kim, USGC director in South Korea, and Youngjin Lee, USGC administrative manager, operated a promotional booth on behalf of the organization. After the 2020 event was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the biennial event this year featured 3,000 booths from 10 different countries. The event is an opportunity for the Council’s Korea office to advocate for a renewable fuel standard (RFS) in that country and builds on participation earlier in the year with the Indy 500 and the recent Seoul International Symposium, Biofuels in a Climate Crisis and Carbon Neutral Era.
