  • Wildlife habitat near corn-ethanol refineries has been destroyed at a fast pace since a federal law was passed to produce more biofuels. (
  • While this story was in the news, our USDA, under the direction of our Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, sent a team of biofuels representatives and industry leaders to Asia and India where they touted how many greenhouse emissions can be saved, and how much the air quality can be improved if only their populous developing nations would import our corn ethanol and burn it there. (
  • Domestic ethanol consumption will be influenced by biofuels policy and by ethanol prices. (
  • Japan recently filed an annual biofuels report with the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service's Global Agricultural Information Network that highlights the country's ethanol use and production. (
  • The first-generation biofuels - ethanol from sugar or corn and biodiesel from vegetable oils - are already on the market. (
  • The goal of this book is to introduce readers to second-generation biofuels obtained from non-food biomass, such as forest residue, agricultural residue, switch grass, corn stover, waste wood, municipal solid wastes, and so on. (
  • As oil is a fast depleting resource (BP, 2010), much is expected by the production of biofuels as valid options to replace fossil-oil transportation. (
  • It calls on the country to use, by 2022, an additional 21 billion gallons a year of ethanol or other biofuels produced by unlocking the energy contained in such biological materials as straw, tree trimmings, corn stubble and even garbage, material known collectively as biomass. (
  • If it seems like you've read a variation of the above headline before you're not wrong, and as much as anything it's a sign of the rock road cellulosic ethanol and biofuels in general have had in the past few years. (
  • Encouraged by legislative measures, including notably the 2007 Energy Security and Independence Act, which mandated the use of 36 billion gallons, or 136 billion liters, of biofuels annually by 2022, the U.S. ethanol industry has boomed in the last few years. (
  • Additionally, the food-versus-fuel debate has spurred significant research and development of second-generation biofuels like cellulosic ethanol that do not use food crops. (
  • To help meet the rapidly growing demand for biofuels, scientists and policy makers envision that a variety of agricultural, municipal, and forest-derived feedstocks will be used to produce "second-generation" biofuels, whereby carbon-rich materials are either fermented to produce ethanol or combusted under oxygen-limiting conditions to produce "syngas" (which can be used to produce a variety of biofuels or chemicals). (
  • For example, some of the main challenges for production and use of biofuels are that current agricultural practices simply cannot deliver sufficient amounts at low-enough prices to meet the massive demand. (
  • Biofuels, most notably corn-based ethanol, have grown significantly in the past few years as a component of U.S. motor fuel supply. (
  • CO 2 with a biomass origin is not only released from biomass fuelled power plants, but also during the production of pulp used to make paper and in the production of biofuels such as biogas and bioethanol . (
  • The International Institute for Sustainable Development was not so diplomatic, and estimates that the CO2 and climate benefits from replacing petroleum fuels with biofuels like ethanol are basically zero ( IISD ). (
  • A new study says within a 100-mile radius of ethanol plants, 4 million acres across the U.S. have been converted to agricultural use in the four years after passing the Renewable Fuel Standard. (
  • Well, at that national level, you really can't see the concentrated pockets of conversion that we show are happening around ethanol plants," he points out. (
  • Enogen ® is a win for corn growers, ethanol plants and rural communities. (

  • Corn grain is approximately two-thirds starch, which dry mill plants convert into ethanol and carbon dioxide. (
  • Wet distillers grains are more perishable co-products than dried distillers grains, therefore mainly are delivered to livestock operations located near ethanol plants. (
  • In the 2016/17 marketing year, U.S. ethanol plants produced a new record of 41.01 million tons of DDGS, up 4 percent from the 2015/16 marketing year (39.35 million tons) (see Figure 2). (
  • Based on data published by USDA-ERS on March 2018, U.S. ethanol plants are expected to produce 41.56 million tons of DDGS in the 2017/18 marketing year, up 1.3 percent from the previous marketing year (see Figure 2). (
  • Another important co-product from dry mill plants is corn distillers oil (CDO). (
  • Dry-milling plants cost less to build and produce higher yields of ethanol, but the value of co-products is less. (
  • Most of the ethanol plants in the U.S. utilize a dry-milling process. (
  • Much has been made of the recent surge in domestic ethanol production and the re-opening of some ethanol plants," Good said. (
  • Other corn producers began to organize efforts to build ethanol plants with the intent of using up some of the local surplus. (
  • Massive flooding in the Midwest has knocked out roughly 13 percent of the nation's ethanol production capacity, as plants in Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota have been forced to shut down or scale back production. (
  • The U.S. has some 200 ethanol plants capable of producing 1.06 million barrels per day, and about 100,000 to 140,000 barrels per day of capacity has been taken offline due to the floods, according to three traders who track operations. (
  • Ethanol plants use rail cars to deliver products to the Gulf Coast, East Coast and West Coast markets. (
  • Fourteen plants in the Poet network have now installed Poet's patent-pending corn oil technology, bringing total annual production capacity to approximately 235 million pounds per year, enough to provide feedstock for approximately 31 million gallons of biodiesel. (
  • Poet has been selling Voilà, a trademarked corn oil product, into biodiesel and feed markets since January 2011, and strong demand for the product has prompted plans to upgrade the majority of the plants in the Poet network. (
  • There's a lot of doubt as to whether enough cropland actually exists, especially if a lot of the biofuel must actually be used to power the production plants. (
  • As corn prices soar amid deepening drought, ethanol plants watch their margins evaporate. (
  • Dried corn plants stand in a field near Mead, Neb. (
  • As a result, many ethanol plants have cut production. (
  • The price of corn got so high and the price of ethanol didn't rise fast enough, that these plants were losing money on every gallon of ethanol we made," says Bill Day , a spokesman for Valero Energy Corp. Valero, a petroleum refining company based in San Antonio , Texas , has closed two of its 10 ethanol plants, including the one in Linden. (
  • With 211 plants in 27 states, the ethanol industry produced 13.9 billion gallons in 2011. (
  • Last year ethanol plants were spending millions of dollars to expand plants, make improvements, and invest in allied businesses, like fish and shrimp farms, which use some of the byproducts of the ethanol-making process, says Todd Sneller, administrator for the Nebraska Ethanol Board, a public agency that promotes ethanol. (
  • Now, plants in Nebraska , the second largest ethanol-producing state, have cut production between 20 and 30 percent, says Mr. Sneller, and the Ethanol Board is getting calls from investors looking for "distressed" plants to buy. (
  • An enzyme from a microbe that lives inside a cow's stomach is the key to turning corn plants into fuel, according to Michigan State University scientists. (
  • MSU scientists have discovered a way to grow corn plants that contain this enzyme. (
  • Traditionally in the commercial biofuel industry, only the kernels of corn plants could be used to make ethanol, but this new discovery will allow the entire corn plant to be used "" so more fuel can be produced with less cost. (
  • Three sites in the United States, Canada, and Germany have been proposed for the new plant, which will produce about 200 million liters a year - a capacity similar to that of the largest existing ethanol plants - and should be operational by 2007, says Jeff Passmore, executive vice president of Iogen. (
  • In 2005/06, operational dry mill corn ethanol plants had a net profit of $1.56 per gallon with a volume large enough to pay off the initial plant construction cost in two years. (
  • The legislation set off a frenzied buildup of ethanol plants across the Midwest, with the number of distilleries increasing to 134 today from 81 in January 2005, according to the Renewable Fuels Association. (
  • Higher natural gas prices amid some of the coldest temperatures in the Midwest in years have raised costs for ethanol makers who use it to operate their plants. (
  • Bitterly cold temperatures were forecast to return early next week in the Midwest region where most U.S. ethanol plants are located, after a brief warmup this week, according to the Commodity Weather Group. (
  • There are now at least 200 ethanol plants in at least 27 states, almost all using corn as a feedstock. (
  • As ethanol plants have sprouted, mostly in the midwestern Corn Belt, environmental effects have followed. (

  • The plant also produces 13,000 metric tons of lignin pellets per year, used as fuel at combined-heat-and-power plants, and 11,100 metric tons of C5 molasses which is currently used for biomethane production via anaerobic digestion, and has been tested as a high carbohydrate animal feed supplement and potential bio-based feedstock for production of numerous commodity chemicals including diols, glycols, organic acids, and biopolymer precursors and intermediates. (
  • The March 2018 DDGS production projection (41.56 million tons) for 2017/18 is based on estimates contained in the USDA's World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) for the prior month, which in this case is the February 2018 WASDE publication. (
  • The increase in corn use for ethanol was based on the March 2018 data from the USDA-NASS's Grain Crushings and Co-Products Production report and the pace of weekly ethanol production during February as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). (
  • Revenues were $45.0 million for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $40.8 million for the second quarter of 2017, driven by an increase in ethanol sales volumes from 15.6 million gallons to 16.4 million gallons and by stronger wet distillers grain and glycerin demand and pricing. (

  • By 2026, land area attributed to corn ethanol production is reduced to 11% to 19% depending on the corn grain yield level associated with the four corn production scenarios, considering oil replacement associated with the soybean meal substituted in livestock diets with distillers dried grains with solubles. (
  • Miscanthus, a perennial grass, is an attractive biofuel feedstock compared with corn and poplar due to its high energy yield per hectare and low. (
  • A return to a more balanced year-over-year increase in ethanol production capacity, matched with technology adoption and paralleling corn-grain yield increases, is critical to achieve these goals and to eliminate the 2008 supply/demand imbalance. (
  • They found that switchgrass ethanol can deliver around 540 percent of the energy used to produce it, as opposed to corn ethanol which can only yield around 124 percent. (
  • Moreover, ethanol is now a huge component of global energy supplies and the suspension of the mandate could push up oil prices. (
  • Tom Vilsack, US agriculture secretary, raised doubts about the impact of waiving the ethanol mandate, arguing that the US biofuel industry had reduced petrol prices and created jobs. (
  • A coalition of beef, pork, chicken and dairy producers petitioned the US Environmental Protection Agency last month to waive the ethanol mandate in response to rising corn prices. (
  • July 30 (Reuters) - The debate over using crops for fuel burst back onto the political stage on Monday as U.S. ranchers and poultry producers sought "a little help" from the government by waiving its ethanol mandate in the face of a dire drought. (
  • Their lobby groups banded together on Monday to seek a first-ever waiver from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for a one-year reduction or suspension in the U.S. ethanol mandate, which in essence requires that more than a third of the U.S. corn harvest be used for motor fuel. (
  • The difficulties for the ethanol industry also come as the federal ethanol mandate falls under increased attack. (
  • Livestock farmers and the meat industry want the US Environmental Protection Agency to suspend the mandate, arguing that it is driving up the price of corn and squeezing ranchers and other farmers who buy corn to feed their chickens, pigs, and beef cattle. (
  • Agricultural economists say that suspending the mandate may not make much of a difference in either ethanol production or the price of corn. (
  • Indeed, last year's production exceeded the mandate. (
  • An ethanol production mandate could be in conflict with efforts to reduce the Gulf Coast dead zone. (
  • When corn prices soared in 2008, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas requested that the EPA waive 50% of the mandate for the production of corn ethanol. (
  • An ethanol mandate that causes little economic harm when unemployment rates are low, corn production is high, and China's demand for U.S. corn imports is low could inflict severe harm when the opposite conditions obtain - as they do today. (
  • Ethanol is made at present from food crops, like corn. (
  • The new legislation would oblige farmers to grow new crops in new ways, automobile companies to produce more vehicles capable of running on a high-ethanol blend, and the oil industry to retrofit its refining and distribution networks to deliver the new fuel. (
  • The first large-scale commercial operation to produce cellulosic ethanol (the kind of ethanol made not from corn or other grown crops, but from organic waste) in the US just got major backing from the oil industry, and will be online in 2013. (
  • Unlike food crops, ethanol crops and cellulosic ethanol crops can grow in any soil that will sustain grass . (

  • The growing season continues to rapidly advance toward what might be record-yielding corn and soybean crops. (
  • So, as the price of corn has increased substantially since 2007 (due primarily to the increase in demand for ethanol production), the price of DDGS has also increased, thereby substantially increasing DDGS revenue. (
  • citation needed] On account of great demand for ethanol corn is fetching higher prices. (
  • Since 2007 non-corn cost has declined from 70 cents to 60 cents per gallon of ethanol, although costs spiked to over 80 cents during a portion of 2008/09. (

  • Enogen corn helps support the U.S. ethanol industry, a critically important sector to American farmers, rural communities and the nation. (
  • Several recent developments have stimulated farmers' interest in raising corn for ethanol production in northwestern North Dakota. (
  • The purpose of this study is to estimate the corn supply response of western North Dakota farmers for ethanol production. (
  • The US government is ending a three-decade-old policy of subsidizing corn ethanol, but it appears that the loss of the 6 billion dollars annual benefit will have little impact on farmers. (
  • Corn farmers are still digging out from the flooding, and some have already determined some of their supplies are unsuitable. (
  • Currently, farmers have little use for the stripped-down corn cobs. (
  • Concern over the ramifications of the drought is growing as it becomes apparent that the corn harvest may be more than a quarter smaller than initially estimated this spring, when farmers raced to plant a near-record number of acres. (

  • The plant, located in Emmitsburg, Iowa, where Poet already has a traditional corn-based ethanol refinery, is expected to produce 95 million litres per year once it starts commercial production in 2011. (
  • Traditional corn-based ethanol is significantly more expensive than ethanol produced using Alliance Bio-Products' CTS process. (
  • This increase in DDGS production reflects the 2.8 percent growth in ethanol production (5.37 billion gallons) during the same period (see Figures 1). (
  • DDGS revenue is closely tied to the cost of corn. (
  • Since 2007 the relationship between DDGS revenue and corn cost has remained relatively constant in a range of 25% to 30% (DDGS revenue being 25-30% of cost of corn). (
  • Although DDGS generates only a relatively small portion of the revenue from corn-ethanol production, its importance has increased since 2007. (
  • Also shown in Figure 5, DDGS has gone from offsetting roughly half of non-corn costs in 2007 to offsetting all non-corn cost during a portion of the 2011/12 period to generating a net return of 20 cents per gallon over non-corn costs currently. (
  • By 2011, the breakeven purchase price of corn was equal to the selling price of ethanol because DDGS revenue was sufficient to offset all of the non-corn costs. (
