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 Cosan Limited (NYSE: CZZ) and BioFuel Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: BIOF).

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."

Cosan is Brazil's largest renewable energy company. Not only is it the world's first fully vertically integrated bioenergy company, it is the only industry player in Brazil to be fully integrated. Through Raízen, a joint venture between Cosan and Shell created in June of 2011, the company produces more than 2.2 billion liters of ethanol per year to supply both domestic and international markets and 4 million tonnes of sugar, with 900 MW of installed capacity -- making it the world's largest power generator of electricity from sugarcane bagasse.
BioFuel Energy was founded in 2005 with initial production from two plants commencing in 2008. With both plants active, BioFuel Energy expects to produce 230 million gallons of fuel grade ethanol and approximately 720,000 tons of distiller grains annually.
