2011 Ethanol Production Nears 14 Billion Gallons

March 1, 2012 12:10 AM

According to data compiled by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), ethanol producers supplied a record 13.948 billion gallons (332.11 million barrels) in calendar year 2011 -- an increase from 13.231 billion gallons in 2010.

Strong production in the ending months of 2011 helped push domestic ethanol production to these record levels and outpace the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requirement for renewable fuel of 13.2 billion gallons for 2011, says RFA. December production was a new monthly record of 29.772 million barrels.


Juli says: According to USDA Chief Economist Joe Glauber, ethanol production is expected to be down 50 million bu. in 2012-13 from last year's levels due to contrains in the blend wall.
