Dakota Ethanol passes 1 billion gallon mark

March 11, 2021 |

In South Dakota, Dakota Ethanol announced the company has surpassed 1 billion gallons of ethanol production at its 90 million-gallon-per-year (MGY) facility in Wentworth, South Dakota. Dakota Ethanol began production in September 2001 with a nameplate capacity of 40 MGY. The evolution of the plant is credited to the united vision of its parent company Lake Area Corn Processors, LLC and its over 1,000 members of local producers, investors, and community members. Dakota Ethanol maintains a strong commitment to return value to its member owners.
Dakota Ethanol’s 90 million gallons of ethanol are produced from 30 million bushels of locally grown corn each year. The plant also provides a variety of distillers grains products for livestock feed, as well as corn oil. Dakota Ethanol not only produces a low carbon fuel and highly sought-after distillers grain, the plant positively impacts the local and regional economies, and employs 45 full-time individuals, many who have been with the company since startup.
