In this month’s article, we look at ethanol production margins in the first 8 months of 2018 and compare with the recent past. Before we get into margins, we briefly visit the current ethanol production rate in 2018.
US fuel ethanol production capacity expanded to 16 billion gallons per year at the beginning of 2018. In the Midwest, total nameplate capacity is now at 14.8 billion gallons per year, an increase of 5%. A very recent analysis of the US ethanol production capacity published by U.S. Energy Information Administration can be found here.
