The National Coproducts Project

NEW! Visit the Coproducts Project Database to compare and analyze historical and current DDGS data from the National Coproducts Project Library. 

The National Coproducts Project is a joint initiative of the Illinois Corn Marketing Board and the NCERC at SIUE to demonstrate the value and consistency of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) over time. Through the Coproducts Project, ethanol plants across Illinois submit monthly DDGS samples for compositional analysis and amino acid profiling. These results of these analyses are then publicly posted and marketed for use by researchers, feedstock buyers,   export markets, and other users. The Coproducts Project aims to increase profits of corn processors, ethanol producers, and the livestock industry by providing a reliable source of data to demonstrate the value of DDGS. 

Since 2007, the NCERC has been home to the National DDGS Library, collecting DDGS and other ethanol coproduct samples from nearly every ethanol producer in the United States.This invaluable resource has provided researchers, ethanol producers, corn processors, export marketers and technology providers with a reliable source of baseline data and generated multiple research projects and white papers. 

For more information about the Coproducts Project, or to inquire about a specific plant, please contact Courtney Breckenridge at cbreckenridge@ethanolresearch.com or 618-659-6737 ext. 230.
