Eleven teams of people from around the world visited the states of Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio and Wisconsin following the Global Ethanol Summit in Washington, D.C., to get a better handle on the U.S. ethanol value chain. One team, including members from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, toured Kansas before the summit.

In addition to the delegations pictured in the slideshow, people from Mexico visited Nebraska; people from Korea, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Honduras and Brazil visited Wisconsin; people from Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Egypt and Turkey visited Illinois; people from Ghana, Nigeria, Israel and South Africa visited Colorado, and people from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Hungary, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands visited Iowa.
