Ethanol

Musket Railyard

Ethanol is a renewable alcohol created by the fermentation of grain starches. It is added to gasoline to provide extra “oxygenates” to the combustion of gasoline to help complete the combustion cycle and reduce pollutants in the exhaust.

Ethanol (or similar oxygenate) is required by law to be added to “reformulated” gasoline in many parts of the country that are considered “non-attainment zones” for air quality. This includes most of the large urban areas. Additionally ethanol is used as an oxygenate and octane booster in most areas of the country for conventional gasoline.

Aside from the obvious need to use in mandated areas for air quality, Ethanol is a competitive blend stock for octane most of the time.

Musket operates three unit train facilities to efficiently distribute customers ethanol cost competitively. We also operate manifest supply at several terminals as the market dictates.
