Aurora Cooperative Has Announced Partnership With Pacific Ethanol

Aurora Cooperative Elevator Company has partnered with Pacific Ethanol through investment and ownership in Aurora Ethanol Plants.

The move creates a new company, Pacific Aurora LLC that fully integrates and owns the Aurora assets of Pacific Ethanol and the Aurora West Grain Elevator of the Aurora Cooperative Elevator Company. ACEC will manage the corn receiving operations and origination of all grain on behalf of PAL.

ACEC says its participation will create new marketing opportunities for the ACEC patron-owners and says ownership in PAL will allow for their patron-owner to participate in downstream revenue and vertical integration of the grain industry through ethanol.
