US ethanol trade association Growth Energy has welcomed The Andersons as its newest producer plant member. The addition brings the association’s membership to a total of 103 producer plant members, who represent 8.7 billion gallons of total US ethanol production.

Established in Maumee in the US state of Ohion in 1947, The Andersons is a diversified company rooted in agriculture, carrying out business across the US in the grain, ethanol, plant nutrient and rail sectors.

The company owns ethanol plants in Albion, Michigan; Logansport, Indiana; Greenville, Ohio; Denison, Iowa; and Colwich, Kansas. These plants have a combined production capacity of over 545 million gallons per year.

The Andersons’ Colwich, Kansas facility, which operates under the entity ELEMENT in partnership with ICM, opened earlier this year in August, and is expected to be the most efficient dry mill ethanol plant in the US.

Welcoming The Andersons, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said: “We are extremely proud to now represent The Andersons among our growing and diverse membership. The story of The Andersons is a familiar one to many across the heartland — where innovation, hard work, and enduring relationships serve as the foundation of the company’s success.

“As the US ethanol industry has grown, The Andersons has been a pivotal player for nearly 20 years, working to expand homegrown ethanol and increase its accessibility at the pump. We look forward to continuing our work with The Andersons and utilising its diverse agricultural expertise as part of our association.”

Jim Pirolli, president of The Andersons Ethanol Group, added: “The Andersons is excited to join Growth Energy and its other members in supporting policy for a pro-ethanol market environment and boosting the accessibility of high-ethanol blends at the pump.”
