RFA It gets to be monotonous to report that ethanol production is continuing to increase, but it is. The latest figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) show that ethanol production in the U.S. averaged 269,000 barrels per day (b/d) in October, up 8,000 b/d from September. The Renewable Fuels Association reports that demand for ethanol also grew substantially to 278,000 b/d, which is the second highest monthly demand, surpassed only by August demand. RFA President Bob Dinneen says it shows the industry is here to stay. “Now producing well over the first year requirement of the RFS, the ethanol industry is fully prepared to exceed the requirements of this program in the years to come.”
