In Australia, Greenbelt Resources Corporation announced that it has commissioned the first waste-to-ethanol system for Standard Ethanol Pty. Ltd. that intends to deliver end-to-end, commercial-scale advanced biofuel systems to the Australian market. This important milestone demonstrates the ability of Greenbelt’s commercial-scale technology and design integration to produce fertilizer, animal feed and over 0.5 million gallons per year of fuel-grade ethanol from waste wheat screenings.
The modular automated system designed by Greenbelt for Standard Ethanol is based on Greenbelt’s standard technology platform. Features of the system include: proprietary distillation and dehydration modules and plant-wide implementation of Greenbelt’s proprietary automated process controls built on top of its central control platform. The system recycles wheat enabling it to gain added value from lower grades of wheat, while achieving a measure of local energy independence – further proving that converting waste to bio-products is a profitable endeavor.
