We are a grassroots, investor-owned 100 million gallons per year fuel ethanol plant. Cardinal Ethanol began production at its ethanol plant in East Central Indiana, near Union City on November 1, 2008. We use over 36 million bushels of corn and produce approximately 100 million gallons of ethanol, along with 320,000 tons of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) per year. We also produce corn oil for use in the bio-diesel industry and CO2 is captured on site for use in the bottling industry.
