ICIS assessed the Q2 200-proof industrial ethanol contract price at $4.20-4.80/gal FOB (free on board) US Gulf Coast (USG), and the Q2 190-proof industrial ethanol contract at $4.00-4.60/gal FOB USG.

Industrial contracts were delayed this quarter as market participants were focused on the active spot market and attempting to meet demand.

Ethanol is used as a gasoline blendstock, in pharmaceuticals, and in food and beverage applications, such as hand sanitizers and vodka.
