Ontario corn farmers look to boost sales to ethanol industry as E10 draws near

January 3, 2018 |

In Canada, Ontario corn farmers are excited about the opportunity to supply more corn for the proposed 10% ethanol blending mandate that will see demand increase by about 500 million liters per year. The province’s ethanol facilities are currently running at nearly 100% of installed capacity, meaning expansion and new facilities will be required, and they’ll need more corn. Currently about 34% of the province’s corn crop is used for ethanol production while about 221 million liters of ethanol are imported annually to reach the 5% mandate in place at the moment.
