"The ethanol industry has more records than Sammy Sosa," says RFA

WASHINGTON, DC -The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) today announced the domestic ethanol industry set its 17th straight monthly production record. According to data released today, the ethanol industry produced over 116,000 barrels per day (b/d) in February of this year. This new record exceeds the previous February record of 108,000 b/d set in 2000. The current streak started in October of 1999.

"The ethanol industry has more records than Sammy Sosa," said Eric Vaughn, president of the RFA. "And we're not stopping until we break Joe DiMaggio's consecutive hit streak. While the fossil fuel starting line-up of oil, gas, and coal is striking out, renewable energy's clean-up batter, ethanol, is hitting home runs."

February's production also set a new all-time monthly record breaking the previous record of 115,000 barrels per day set last month. After undergoing record expansion of production capacity in 2000, the ethanol industry will break that record in 2001. Currently 46 ethanol production facilities are being built or expanded. Nearly twenty additional ethanol plants are scheduled to begin construction this year.

"As the debate around a national energy policy swirls in Washington, the ethanol industry continues to break records," said Vaughn. "We're not just talking about how to meet America's energy needs, we're doing it. The ethanol industry is showing every day why it deserves a prominent role in America's energy future. American farmers and the ethanol industry won't let consumers down."
