This paper, authored by Roger G. Ginder of Iowa State University, examines the impacts that rapid increases in the production of ethanol will place on infrastructure involved in producing and shipping ethanol and co-products. Ginder concludes that significant additional investment in infrastructure is needed for the planned expansion in capacity to be economically viable, and warns that if these issues are not addressed, infrastructure limitations can be expected to slow the rate at which ethanol production can grow.
