AEP Ethanol might soon become more available on the east coast. Agri-Ethanol Products of Raleigh, NC has announced that it now has financing to build as many as 20 renewable energy facilities from the Gulf states to New York. AEP is already building the first 100 million gallon ethanol plant located on the East Coast near Aurora, NC. According to a news release, at least two new North Carolina ethanol projects, in addition to the Aurora site, are anticipated as a part of the 20 potential facilities. Each of these facilities will produce 108 million gallons per year of undenatured, fuel grade ethanol; 380,000 tons of high protein DDGS and 320,000 tons of CO2, that will be purified and marketed into the food and beverage industries.
