Our Products

We use the entire kernel of corn to produce: 

  • Ethanol. A clean-burning, high-octance renewable fuel that is blended with gasoline.
  • Distillers grains, dried or modified (wet). Protein, fat, fiber and other solids from the fermenting process. This is used as a high-value feed for cattle, swine and poultry.
  • Fuel-and feed-grade corn oil. Used to make renewable diesel fuel and livestock feed.
