Multi-Feedstock Supply

The plant is designed to utilize feed wheat, corn, barley and / or combination of barley and peas as the feedstock; however the operation strategy is to focus on barley and peas as the feedstock due to geographic availability and long term pricing stability of these two feedstocks within the plant location area. While the primary feedstock for the plant will be feed barley and peas, PGRE's state of the art facility will be capable of processing almost any crop into ethanol.  This includes wet or damaged crops. 

Historically the price of feed barley trends at 55% - 70% of the price of corn. The feed value of barley is about 90% that of corn and current trends suggest that the spread between barley and corn will continue to widen with corn being the more expensive feedstock commodity.

Neither feed barley nor feed peas are part of the mainstream human food supply, therefore, all negative sentiments over the "fuel vs food" controversy are avoided.
