Ethanol producers seek corn oil extraction to offset VEETC tax credit loss

In Iowa, ethanol producers will begin investing in corn oil extraction equipment with gusto in order to compensate for the lack of VEETC by earning the $6.6 million per year a typical 100 million gallon ethanol plant would get by extracting the oil from the DDGs.

Doing so also reduces the nutritional value of the DDGs, which ironically means that livestock producers using DDGs would pay an extra $13 per ton to get the nutrition needed after the expiration of VEETC than before.
