Iowa’s ethanol leader, farmers say fuel production is more sustainable than it was years ago

Modern technology and practices are helping to produce more with less input, not just in the field of farms.

Dave Sovereign of Golden Grain Energy, Iowa, states that ethanol production practices have improved dramatically since the plant opened in 2004. The amount of gallons obtained from the corn bushel has increased significantly, and along with this, the amount of energy and water used has also decreased significantly. “

Sovereign told Brownfield at the National Ethanol Conference that the ethanol industry has surpassed early technology for a few generations and is increasing ethanol while protecting the environment. “There are active environmental activists, but that’s important because we’re environmental activists here. We can lose track of it, and when we live and work in these communities, We want them to have the cleanest water and the best air we can. “

Sovereign is also a producer of bovine calves selling corn to ethanol plants, saying the low-carbon program is an opportunity. And through these evolving low-carbon policies, we benefit all our rural communities. “

He says Golden Grain Energy has about 900 local investors, producing 120 million gallons of ethanol annually.
