25-30 mgy corn stover-ethanol plant for Illinois

Recommended Posts



Gene Griffith, co-founder and president of Patriot Renewable Fuels LLC and Thomas Corle, co-founding partner of Leifmark LLC, recently announced that Leifmark has been hired to create a custom project definition, the first stage of a plan for collocating an Inbicon Biomass Refinery on the site of Patriot's 110 MMgy grain-ethanol plant in Annawan, Ill.


"Leifmark's analysis will give us a clear picture of the overall technical and economic factors," Griffith said. "Their study will provide a sound basis for deciding whether Patriot should go ahead with the engineering phase of the project."...


...At the centerpiece of the technology platform is the Inbicon biomass conversion technology, which Denmark's DONG Energy began developing in the late 1990s and has demonstrated for over 15,000 hours at its Inbicon Biomass Refinery in Kalundborg, where it typically processes 4.4 tons an hour of wheat straw.


The commercial model in the plans for Annawan will process about 1320 tons per day of corn stover using Inbicon's patented technology and mixed-sugar (cellulose/hemicellulose) fermentation. Annual production will be 25-30 MMgy of cellulosic ethanol and up to 175,000 tons of high-purity lignin, which has BTU value similar to coal and can provide more than enough base-load power to run the operation without fossil fuels....



put another one up on your list of mythical/hypothetical plants that don't exist to watch!  Finally one outside of Iowa!  Well, not by much, but still, the movement is spreading!
