Neil Koehler, Pacific Ethanol’s CEO, stated, "During the third quarter, Pacific Ethanol used sorghum for approximately 30 percent of the feedstock at our Stockton plant. Blended with corn, sorghum has similar conversion properties to corn and produces even lower carbon ethanol."
Chromatin is exploring other opportunities to grow sorghum grain in California and expects to expand its production in 2013.
