Ethanol Giving Back
 
Ethanol industry giving back to the community, boosting the economy in Southwest Michigan
Carbon Green BioEnergy highlights continuing low prices for holiday travelers, benefits for rural communities
 
LAKE ODESSA – Leaders from Carbon Green BioEnergy today emphasized the local economic benefits of Michigan-made ethanol, especially for rural communities across Southwest Michigan. Boosted by the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), ethanol companies like Carbon Green BioEnergy are using Michigan-made corn and employing Michigan workers to create clean-burning biofuels.
 
“Last year, Carbon Green BioEnergy purchased more than $80 million worth of Michigan corn from 500 farmers – all within a two-hour drive of the facility,” said Gabe Corey, commodities and risk manager for the company. “We hired local contractors and other providers to do work ranging from maintenance to accounting, resulting in more than $1.3 million injected back into the local economy.”
 
Statewide, renewable fuels account for approximately 22,000 jobs and more than $1.1 billion in wages every year. Ethanol production is especially important in Southwest Michigan, home to nearly 500,000 acres of corn production.
 
Carbon Green BioEnergy CEO Mitch Miller highlighted the availability of lower-cost fuels at the pump, thanks to high-blend ethanol pumps like the one at Carbon Green BioEnergy.
 
“Especially during the holidays, we know that being able to fill up with low cost fuels is very important for our customers,” said Miller. “Even with the price of conventional fuels dropping, ethanol can save drivers money at the pump – and the Yellow Hose campaign will continue to provide a dollar off regular prices through the end of the year.”
 
The RFS is a forward-looking federal policy that sets the amount of ethanol blended into fuels in the United States. A strong RFS is critical to strengthening ethanol production and achieving the local economic impacts associated with the ethanol industry in Southwest Michigan.
 
“I know we are not alone among ethanol plants – ethanol provides important economic benefits across the nation, especially in rural areas,” said Corey. “By virtue of their rural location, and their willingness to seek out and create partnerships with local businesses, ethanol plants are creating more jobs and more economic opportunity through the creation of biofuels. We need a strong Renewable Fuel Standard to keep that momentum going.”
