Taking part in Nebraska’s trade mission next month to the far East is State Ethanol Board Administrator Todd Sneller. He’ll be on the Japan leg of the trip,. where he’ll share with those attending the Midwest U.S. and Japan Trade Association conference. Sneller will talk about opportunities for the biofuels industry.  He says there are many trade possibilities between the two countries in that area.

Sneller says the trip is a great chance to attract new business for Nebraska and the United States.
