16:24 EDTGEVOGevo begins to produce, ship isobutanol in railcar volumes
Gevo reported an update on the progress of the Side-by-Side operational mode, or SBS, of its plant in Luverne, MN. With the completion of the last phase of capital for SBS, Gevo has begun to produce and ship isobutanol in railcar volumes. In its Q2 quarter earnings release, Gevo reported that it would be installing distillation equipment at the plant, representing the final phase of capital for the SBS. This equipment facilitates the extraction of isobutanol from the plant, which should enable Gevo to boost production levels of isobutanol by debottlenecking the downstream side of the plant. This distillation equipment was commissioned in early September and is already showing improved results at the plant, such as a doubling of isobutanol batch sizes, a 50% reduction in isobutanol batch turnaround times, consistent yields of >90% based on starch content, and a continued decrease in isobutanol production costs towards targeted economic rates. "By installing the last phase of capital at Luverne, we remain confident that we will be able to achieve production levels of 50K-100K gallons of isobutanol per month by the end of 2014. As we continue to learn and optimize the isobutanol production process, we believe we can ultimately increase our production rate to approximately 2M-3M gallons of isobutanol per annum under the SBS, while we are producing ethanol in the other three fermenters," said CEO Patrick Gruber.

08:37 EDTPEIXPacific Ethanol agrees to sell CO2 from Columbia plant
Pacific Ethanol announced its agreement with Kodiak Carbonic to sell CO2 from the Pacific Ethanol Columbia plant located in Boardman, Oregon. Kodiak plans to construct a liquefaction and dry ice processing plant adjacent to the Columbia facility and expects to purchase up to 200 tons of CO2 per day to sell to food processing and beverage producers. Neil Koehler, the company's president and CEO, said, "The opportunity to utilize the CO2 from our ethanol production process as another co-product for sale further diversifies our revenues and improves Pacific Ethanol's profitability. We anticipate the new CO2 processing plant in Boardman to begin operations in early 2015 and to contribute approximately 1c-2c per gallon in operating income."

12:03 EDTANDE, ADMUSDA raises U.S. corn yield forecast to record
In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month.
