Submitted by on February 16, 2012 – 10:00 amNo Comment

by Steve Tarter  (The State-Journal Register)  More U.S. ethanol was shipped overseas in 2011 than any year in history.

The Washington, D.C.-based Renewable Fuels Association reported that 1.1 billion gallons of ethanol — worth about $2.5 billion — were exported to other nations, three times more than was exported in 2010.

More than one third of U.S. ethanol exports — about 400 million gallons — went to Brazil, the South American country that has relied heavily on ethanol-based fuels since the 1970s.

… Illinois was the third-largest ethanol-producing state in the nation in 2011 with production of more than 1.2 billion gallons, according to the Renewable Fuels Association. Here are the top 10:

* Iowa: 3.579 billion
