Nebraska Ethanol Plants

Just one Nebraska ethanol plant in 1985 has grown to 25 ethanol plants today. Spread throughout much of the state, these plants have a capacity of more than 2 billion gallons – making Nebraska the second-largest ethanol producing state in the country.

Combined, these plants use more than 700 million bushels of corn per year – and produce more than 6 million tons of distillers grains, a high protein feed ingredient used for cattle.

These ethanol plants represent more than $5 billion in capital investment in the state and provide direct full-time employment for more than 1,300 Nebraskans.

Geographic position, abundant ethanol supply and reliable, competitive rail transportation gives Nebraska a strategic advantage in serving ethanol markets in the western U.S.
