Objectives

  • Who – AmeriFuels – Kearney, NE

  • What – Industrial engines 100% Ethanol

  • When – Operating engines over past three years

  • Where – Nebraska & Kansas – Delta

  • Why – Create a Closed Loop Energy System

Ethanol production nebraska1
Ethanol Production Nebraska

  • Nebraska is the second largest Ethanol producing state in the U.S.

  • Over 2.0 Billion gallons

  • Utilizing over 700 million Bu. of Grain

Create a Closed Loop Energy System

  • Allows grower to produce corn, sell corn to a local Ethanol Plant and buy back 100% Ethanol to use as fuel to grow more corn.


Grower consumption power
Grower Consumption Power

  • One well converted to Ethanol

    • 5 gal./hr X 1000 seasonal hours = 5000 gallons

  • Equivalent to 83 cars driving 15,000 miles per year on E10.

    • 15,000 miles / 25 mpg = 600 gallons of E10 per year

    • E10 = 10% Ethanol

    • 600 gallons X 10% = 60 gallons of Ethanol

    • 5,000 grower gal. / 60 driver gal. = 83.3 Drivers


Long term regional opportunity rural commercial sweet sorghum ethanol potential 100 biorefineries

Long-term Regional OpportunityRural Commercial Sweet Sorghum Ethanol Potential: >100 Biorefineries

Each Facility:

-Produces 10MM gpy ethanol

-Uses juice sugars and bagasse

-Requires ~10,000 acres

-Uses 12% of acres in a 6-mile radius

-Displaces 10% of corn+soybeans+cotton

-Creates min. 25 direct & 25 indirect jobs
