Ethanol Feedstock Finance Program

For ethanol producers that need to operate when margins are profitable, FCStone Merchant Services provides working capital financing for ethanol plants through our feedstock financing program. In this program, FCStone Merchant Services finances feedstock and maintains the hedge account for the corn inputs needed by an ethanol plant.  This is a better alternative for an ethanol plant than a traditional tolling arrangement.  FCStone Merchant Services can also offer margin and crush management for these plants if they are not already customers with the assistance of our experts in the FCStone Renewable Fuels Group.
