Brazil’s suspension of ethanol tariff welcomed as opportunity for domestic energy producers

Brazil has temporarily lifted its 18 percent tariff on all U.S. ethanol as of Wednesday, March 23, 2022, and running through the end of the year as a means of decreasing inflationary pressures.

The following is a joint statement from Geoff Cooper, President and CEO, Renewable Fuels Association; Ryan LeGrand, President and CEO, U.S. Grains Council; and Emily Skor, CEO, Growth Energy:

“We are pleased to see the temporary elimination of the 18 percent tariff, which should improve access for Brazil’s ethanol consumers as well as help meet its own decarbonization goals. This is an issue we have been working on for a number of years in meetings and correspondence with officials from Washington to Brasilia.

“We welcome this decision and see it as an opportunity to continue discussions with Brazil to expand the global use of low-carbon ethanol, reduce barriers to trade and elevate its prominence in energy discussions. Our hope is that with this action, Brazil and the U.S. will share with third parties the vision of free and open global ethanol markets.

“We will continue to pursue a long-term, open and mutually beneficial ethanol trading relationship with Brazil as we work to make this temporary reduction permanent. We look forward to continuing to work closely with USDA and USTR to return to a fair and reciprocal trading relationship with Brazil regarding ethanol.”
