Tour of One Earth Energy

Nearly a third of all corn grown in Illinois is used for making ethanol. There are 13 ethanol plants in Illinois and one of them is located here in the 106th district.

One Earth Energy is one of the state’s most efficient ethanol and distillers’ grain producers. They are committed to maximizing returns and enhancing the economic development of American agriculture.

Representatives from One Earth Energy provided an opportunity for legislators to learn more about the ethanol industry and carbon capture. There were also geologists and researchers from the Prairie Research Institute and professors from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign available to answer any questions during the informational presentation. 

They had also provided a report regarding a study that was completed about Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilization in Illinois. Read more about it here.

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend!
