SEA Regional Ethanol Consultant
U.S. Grains Council
Firdaus Hussain serves as a consultant for the U.S. Grains Council, a non-profit organization that promotes the use of U.S. barley, corn, sorghum and related products worldwide. In this capacity, Hussain will lead ethanol programs and promotional efforts throughout the region. Hussain’s position is part of the Council’s expanded engagement in U.S. ethanol export market development in Southeast Asia – a priority, given the potential for exports to the region and the resulting new corn grind those exports could generate.
