Ethanol Facilities
Capacity by State and Plant

There were no changes from March. As of April 2018, the United States had the nameplate capacity to produce 16,241.0 million (16.2 billion) gallons of ethanol, operating refineries producing 15,755.0 million (15.8 billion) gallons of ethanol per year, and had construction or expansion plans for an additional 465.0 million gallons. If no operating production is listed in the table below, the plant has been idled. If dates are known, they are noted in the idled columns. Nebraska's nameplate capacity was 2,281 million gallons, or 14 percent, of the nation's nameplate capacity. Nebraska's operating production was 2,228 million gallons, or 14 percent, of the nation's operating production. Nebraska had 30 million gallons in construction or expansion plans.

The ethanol section of the state energy office's energy statistics has more information as well as the reports Ethanol Production Facilities and Nebraska Ethanol Plants.

Notes:
NA = Not Applicable.
PC = Permanently Closed.
(*) = An asterisk (*) indicates the company's total capacity is divided among its plants.
(**) = Two asterisks (**) indicates the United States' column totals are the Renewable Fuels Association's totals for the United States. Adding state subtotals produces a total that may not equal the Renewable Fuels Association's total for the United States. This is due to the following process: When companies only report their totals, individual plant capacity, production, and construction are researched and estimated.

Organizations, groups, companies, or individuals in the agency's linked pages are for information only and are not an endorsement by the State of Nebraska or the Nebraska Energy Office and its management or staff.
