Fuel Ethanol: A Technological Evolution



Posted on  

August 20, 2001


On Saturday, August 4, Dakota Ethanol LLC became South Dakota's fourth ethanol production facility. The farmer-owned cooperative in Wentworth will produce 40 million gallons per year. Broin and Associates, a South Dakota-based plant design, engineering and construction company built the plant.

"Dakota Ethanol is the latest example of the ethanol industry expanding to meet growing demand," said Bob Dinneen, president of the RFA. "We congratulate the farmer-owners of Dakota Ethanol and thank them for their commitment to the record breaking expansion taking place in the ethanol industry today."

Since 1999, more than a dozen ethanol production facilities have opened and six major expansions to existing facilities have been completed. Today, 57 ethanol plants can produce over 2 billion gallons per year. There are ten additional ethanol plants under construction with a combined annual capacity of 205 million gallons, 34 existing companies undergoing expansions totaling 235 million additional gallons, and dozens of proposed production facilities across the country in various stages of development, engineering and financing. At least two of these plants will begin construction this month.

"Clearly the ethanol industry is rising to the challenge," said Dinneen. "We are building and expanding plants at a record pace. We are breaking monthly ethanol production records. And the pace is only going to pick up over the next two years. With the demand for safe, domestic energy growing, ethanol is playing a larger role in our nation's energy policy from coast to coast. That's good news for farmers, consumers, and the environment."
