Economic Impacts of the Nebraska Ethanol and Co-Products Industry (September 23, 2022)


Webinar Schedule

September 23, 2022: Ethanol Study

Presenter: Eric Thompson

The webinar will discuss the study developed by Kathleen Brooks, Tim Meyer and Cory Walters from the Department of Agricultural Economics and Eric Thompson of the Bureau of Business Research, which estimates the overall economic impact of the Nebraska ethanol industry on the state economy in 2018 and 2019. The study also presents the results of previous joint studies examining the industry's economic impact earlier in the decade.

The authors' find that the Nebraska ethanol industry remains an important market in Nebraska producing 2.253 billion gallons in 2019. While the industry experienced weakened ethanol prices in 2018 and 2019, it has shown resilience through continued expansion in total capacity and diversification of co-products.
