Ethanol industry begins slow recovery
Nebraska Ethanol Board chairman Jan tenBensel says he is confident the ethanol industry will recover from the demand destruction caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“What we’re seeing today is a little bit of what agriculture would be like without ethanol,” tenBensel says. “But I believe this will come back, maybe slowly at first, but it will come back.”
He says Nebraska ethanol plants that were shut down are starting back up.
“As people start driving again and people are getting out, those supply lines are moving again and those plants are able to operate again.”
tenBensel is a farmer from Cambridge, Nebraska.
