We began implementing corn oil extraction technology at our six legacy ethanol plants. As of August 31st, 2011, we were operating corn oil extraction systems at all 9 of our plants. The corn oil systems we are installing are designed to extract non-edible corn oil from the thin stillage evaporation process immediately prior to production of distillers grains. The corn oil product is primarily marketed as a feedstock for biodiesel as well as a supplement to livestock feed.
Other industrial uses for corn oil include feedstock for rubber substitutes, rust preventatives, inks, textiles, soaps and insecticides. Our corn oil is primarily sold to biodiesel manufactures and, to a lesser extent, feed lot and poultry markets. We generally transport our corn oil by truck to locations in close proximity to our ethanol plants, primarily in the southeastern and midwestern regions of the U.S. With our continuous yield improvements we expect to produce over 150 million pounds of corn oil across our platform in 2012.
