Ethanol and Advanced Biofuel Production

Pacific Ethanol owns nine ethanol biorefineries in the Western and Midwestern United States with a combined operating capacity of 605 million gallons of ethanol per year. Our western plants are strategically located near our ethanol and feed customers, giving those plants logistical and transportation cost advantages. Our Midwestern plants take advantage of their proximity to feedstock supply sources and access to diverse national and international markets.

Pacific Ethanol is continually improving its state-of-the-art refining technology of its facilities, developing new ways to improve efficiencies, lowering the carbon content of the fuel and adapting new feedstocks to the production of transportation fuel.
