Quad County Corn Processors
Sioux City-Council Bluffs Area
Quad’s rated capacity is 100,000 gallons of ethanol a day which translates into 35 million gallons per year. As part of the process, Quad also produces 750,000 gallons of corn oil on an annual basis. Quad County’s Research & Development Team has successfully developed a patented process for converting the corn kernel fiber into cellulosic ethanol, additional corn oil, and a high-protein, low-fiber feed. In addition, Quad County generates premium feed co-products. In 2012 alone, over 275,000 tons of these co-products were used in beef and swine rations. At full capacity, QCCP grinds 35,000 bushels of corn per day, or 12.5 million bushels of corn a year. The company has become a primary market for hundreds of Iowa grain producers.
