Phase II of Verbio‘s  strategic plan was to build up the current infrastructure to support ethanol production in addition to the biomethane produced at our plant. In this next step we will produce ethanol, additional RNG, corn oil, nitrogen fertilizer, and other value-added co-products.

The plant will produce 19 million ethanol gallons equivalent (EGE) of RNG and 60 million gallons of corn-based ethanol. We are proud to purchase the feedstock each year from local growers.

Production of ethanol is slated to begin 4th quarter of 2023. The production added additional fermentation tanks, equipment and a corn unloading facility and silo storage, as well as 50 full-time jobs.
