Contact: Thomas Rossmanith
Tel: (636) 728-4500
Abengoa Bioenergy Trading U.S., LLC was formed to manage the critical functions of grain procurement, ethanol and DGGS co-product marketing, and hedging and risk management for all commodities, including energy needs. The concentration of these functions into one specialized entity for all U.S. operations is critical to achieve the company’s goals of consistency, efficiency, and identification of one common brand throughout U.S. Abengoa Bioenergy operations. Currently, Abengoa Trading markets co-products for the six Abengoa owned U.S. ethanol plants. Abengoa's plants are located strategically in the western cattle feeding markets and along the Mississippi River system.
Abengoa Bioenergy Trading U.S. will market approximately 500,000 short tons of DDGS through the center gulf in 2010. Abengoa's unique ability to put this much volume into the market place from identical production facilities leads to the consistency that has been missing from the marketplace in the past. Abengoa also has the ability to pelletize our product without sacrificing the specifications, this leads to increased efficiencies in freight and handling costs for our customers that can benefit from full vessel shipments of DDGS from NOLA.
