The Jefferson plant, located on 344 acres about halfway between Madison and Milwaukee, produces ethanol; distillers grains, corn germ and bran syrup mix as livestock feed products; and carbon dioxide captured, sold and purified for carbonated beverages.
The plant buys corn directly from local farmers within a 40-mile radius – the largest single site consumer of corn in Wisconsin.
Valero’s Jefferson plant is one of about 30 sites in Wisconsin creating habitat for endangered peregrine falcons, with employees building a nest box high in an old grain elevator stairway at the site for the birds to annually nest and reproduce.
