Capacity by State and Plant

As of December 2012, the United States had the nameplate capacity to produce 14,712.4 million (14.7 billion) gallons of ethanol, operating refineries producing 13,300.9 million (13.3 billion) gallons of ethanol per year, and had construction or expansion plans for an additional 158.0 million (0.2 billion) gallons. There were 211 refineries. 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 2,111 million gallons, or 14.4 percent, of the nation's nameplate capacity. Nebraska's operating production was 1,852 million gallons, or 13.9 percent, of the nation's operating production. Nebraska had no construction or expansion plans.

The ethanol section of the state energy office's energy statistics has more information.

Notes:
NA = Not Applicable.
(*) = 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 links 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.
