In Washington, D.C. the Renewable Fuels Association reported that Wisconsin-based member company Badger State Ethanol recently produced its one-billionth gallon of ethanol. The dry-mill ethanol plant in Monroe, Wisc., began production in October 2002 and now has the capacity of more than 85 million gallons of ethanol per year.
Since its inception, BSE has returned value to its local investors, employs 50 people with high-skill, high-wage jobs, and provided a value-added market for area Wisconsin corn producers as well as a local outlet for commercial operations to conduct their grain business. BSE’s 1 billion gallons of ethanol production has provided a market for over 350 million bushels of corn.
