NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- Ethanol companies will look to benefit from falling corn prices as a result of a record crop. "Assuming flat growth in ethanol, that should mean some substantial rebuilding in corn stocks, which certainly helps with volatility and brings down corn prices significantly, although still high," said Joseph Glauber, the chief economist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Ethanol Industry and provides equity research on Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) and Pacific Ethanol Inc. (NASDAQ: PEIX).

One of the major challenges for the ethanol industry has been the lack of access for consumers. The first station in the country where drivers can pump gasoline, ethanol and biodiesel was opened by Propel Fuels last month. The company received a $10.1 million grant from the California Energy Commission to help them construct 100 stations over the next four years around the state of California.
"The gasoline stations don't want a competitor but the alternative fuels industry is dependent on its largest competitor as a pathway to the market," says Geoff Cooper, vice president of research and analysis at the Renewable Fuels Association. "In many cases, you aren't going to see a retailer take a gasoline pump out of commission to put in a product that competes with gasoline."

ADM delivers clean-burning ethanol to refiners through an expansive network of trucks, railcars, barges and terminals. Their customers -- primarily large energy companies -- blend these products with unleaded gasoline in various concentrations to increase the fuel's octane rating and help reduce harmful emissions. Today, ADM makes ethanol from corn through an efficient process that also produces large amounts of animal feed.
