Siouxland Ethanol has become the newest member of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA). The ethanol plant is located near Jackson, Nebraska and began production in May of 2007. Today the biorefinery processes 24 million bushels of corn per year into 70 million gallons of ethanol per year and also produces multiple co-products including 2,000 tons of corn oil and 175,000 tons of distillers grains (DDGs). Siouxland Ethanol is also amidst an expansion project that when complete will increase yearly ethanol production by 15 percent.
“The Renewable Fuels Association is a tireless advocate for the ethanol industry and we are pleased to join its membership,” said Pam Miller, director of industry and investor relations and board chair at Siouxland Ethanol. “As we work to ensure the long term inclusion and growth of ethanol in America’s transportation portfolio, the Renewable Fuels Association’s leadership will be needed. We look forward to our membership.”
RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen welcomed Siouxland Ethanol into the fold. “We are thrilled to announce that Siouxland Ethanol has joined our organization. The hardworking employees of the company have been producing ethanol for nearly a decade, with production increasing in order to provide consumers with the lowest cost, cleanest-burning and highest octane source in the world. We welcome Siouxland Ethanol to our membership and look forward to their contributions.”
