James Valley Ethanol, LLC Begins Production at Farmer-Owned Plant in South Dakota

Groton, SD – The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) today congratulated the farmer-owners of James Valley Ethanol, LLC for beginning production at their ethanol plant near Groton, South Dakota. The plant is the 72nd ethanol plant operating in the U.S.

“We congratulate the farmer-owners of James Valley Ethanol on the start-up of another rural economic engine,” said Bob Dinneen, RFA president, to the crowd assembled for the official grand opening. “Ethanol production represents a great opportunity for farmers to capture the value-added benefit of their commodity. Putting corn into a local ethanol plant instead of a railcar bound for out-of-state equates to more local jobs, more economic activity on Main Street and higher corn prices.”

The James Valley Ethanol, LLC plant will process 16 million bushels of corn into 45 million gallons of ethanol and 135,000 tons of Dakota Gold Plus distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) annually. The plant employs 40 people.

The plant was designed and built by The Broin Companies of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. “James Valley is creating a new market for area corn supplies, providing new, highly technical job positions, and will spend millions of dollars locally in its operations, while contributing a new ethanol supply to a rapidly growing national marketplace. We are very excited to bring this world class facility into full production,” said Jeff Broin, Broin Companies CEO.

“We’d like to thank the Groton community for their strong support,” said Kelly Kjelden, James Valley Ethanol plant manager. “The local corn producers have been tremendous and our talented team of employees is excited and ready to get to work.”

Currently, 72 ethanol plants nationwide have the capacity to produce over 2.85 billion gallons annually. There are ten ethanol plants under construction.
