Ethanol put in deep freeze as polar vortex halts production

January 15, 2014 |

Across the Midwest, ethanol production fell at the fastest rate since 2010 due to the polar vortex. Just 868,000 barrels of ethanol a day were produced last week, 51,000 barrels per day less than the week before. Ethanol producers were forced to scale back production because they didn’t have the storage capacity for both the new production as well as the previous throughput that couldn’t be transported due to rail delays caused by the sub-zero temperatures.
