U.S. ethanol production stays on record-setting pace

U.S. ethanol production set its eighteenth straight monthly year-on-year production record in March, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) said.

March ethanol production totaled 113,000 barrels a day, versus the previous March record of 104,000 barrels produced in March 2000, the group said in a statement.

Although slightly lower than the all-time one-month output record set in February, 2001, the March ethanol production kept the industry on target to produce nearly two billion gallons of ethanol in 2001, the association said.

The U.S. ethanol industry will also set a new capacity expansion record this year. Seven new ethanol plants are under construction and 40 production facilities are being expanded. Nearly two dozen additional ethanol plants are scheduled to begin construction this year, the RFA said.

"As the lack of U.S. refining capacity sparks gas price spikes across the country, ethanol is expanding gasoline supplies to ease the crunch," said RFA president Eric Vaughn.

"Not only is ethanol the lowest-cost, highest-quality octane and oxygen additive in the country, but ethanol is actually priced lower than conventional gasoline in many parts of the country," he said.
