Title: Risk Factors in Ethanol Production
Primary Authors: Coltrain,David;Dean,Erik;Barton,David
Abstract: Investing in an ethanol processing facility involves many risks. The presence of risk means that more than one outcome is possible. Risk refers to the possibility of suffering loss or a profit in an inherently risky environment. For an event to be considered a risk there must be uncertainty about the likelihood of outcomes for the event. This publication discusses risk common to most ethanol facilities. There may be other unique risk factors not discussed since ethanol can be produced from many different types of feedstocks. Before investing in an ethanol facility, investors should consider additional risks that may be unique to a particular production facility.
