EIA: US nameplate fuel ethanol capacity grew 7.9% over past year
24 June 2015
US fuel ethanol production capacity has grown 7.9% over the past year, from 13,681 million gallons per year to 14,757 gallons, according to an annual report from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA).
This is the fifth release of US Energy Information Administration data on fuel ethanol. EIA first reported fuel ethanol production capacities as of 1 January 2011 on 29 November 2011. The new report contains production capacity data for all operating US fuel ethanol production plants as of 1 January 2015.
Corn based ethanol should progressively disappear in favor of pure clean energy based fuels for planes and clean electricity and H2 for BEVs and FCEVs.

Its looking like a very rought start for cellulosic ethanol.
Operating at only 6% or less of nameplate capacity.
