Pacific Ethanol (PEIX) Adding Corn Oil to Business

Copying a number of other producers of ethanol in the United States, Pacific Ethanol (PEIX) is the latest to add a corn oil business to its revenue streams.

At this time Pacific Ethanol is installing corn oil separation technology at one of its four plants, and will have the rest outfitted with it by the first quarter of 2013, according to the company.

They added that revenue should be generated by that same quarter from the corn oil business, implying the first money will be made from the current installation at the one plant.

Executives at the company noted that the first plant should produce approximately 12 million pounds of corn oil, which would add an additional $4.5 million, or 7 cents a gallon to the operating income of the company on an annual basis.

It'll be interesting to see if this also produces a glut in corn oil, as how much demand is there for it if most of the ethanol companies increase corn oil supply. That would drive prices down, possibly defeating the purpose.

Ethanol companies should never have been propped up by the government, and now that they were artificially created, they have to adapt to the real market, where demand for the product is low, along with ethanol margins.

Add to that the destructive nature of ethanol on small equipment and older cars, and you have a very small percentage of people that are supportive of it. That doesn't account for the outrageous toll on the environment which enormous corn inputs cause.

Continual failures in the industry point towards it being a typical disaster when governments interfere with markets.

Pacific Ethanol is a very short step towards having to declare bankruptcy, and its late move into the corn oil business could end up being the nail that closes the coffin on it, depending on supply and demand in that segment.

Its share price of 57 cents tells you what investors think of it.

Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring
writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites
for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a
way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

Any tips?
