ABERDEEN, S.D. — An ethanol plant in northern South Dakota is selling its product in Brazil.

Glacial Lakes Energy at Mina said it has shipped about 25 million gallons to Brazil since late March.

CEO Jim Seurer (SYR) says sales opportunities have opened up in Brazil because of a poor sugar cane crop. He said sugar cane is the main ingredient in what is a very developed ethanol industry in Brazil.

The ethanol is shipped by rail to a Texas port and then loaded on a tanker ship.
