Summary This subcontract report supplies timely data on the historical make-up of the corn ethanol industry and a current estimate of where the industry stands. The subcontractor used experience, contacts, and involvement in the dry grind corn ethanol industry and established an estimate of industry averages for new state-of-the-art mills. The subcontractor has also reported on the expected future trends of the corn ethanol dry grind industry. Capital costs for corn dry grinds have increased significantly with the recent building boom for new capacity but are expected to fall in the coming years due to an anticipated drop in demand. Once the plants currently under construction are completed, ethanol production capacity from corn will approach 15 billion gallons, which is widely regarded as the maximum feasible. Technological advances for the future will most likely see the adoption of fractionation technology by more plants, which will allow the production of higher value co-products than DDGS.
Subject Biomass energy industries.
Alcohol as fuel.
