Midwest Renewable Energy, LLC generates fuel-grade ethanol via natural fermentation and distillation of corn, primarily for blending with gasoline and other motor fuels.

Ethanol is a fuel additive derived from the fermentation of starch or sugar-based feedstock. Fuel ethanol contains approximately 95% ethanol and 5% unleaded gasoline as a denaturant to render it unfit for human consumption. Ethanol-blended fuels are one of the most effective means of reducing air pollution. As a clean-burning fuel, ethanol directly reduces pollution by displacing 10% of the gasoline fuel mixture. Unlike the gasoline mixture, ethanol contains oxygen which increases the efficiency of the combustion process, reducing the tailpipe emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter and ozone forming air toxics.
