Whitefox’s successful start-up at United Ethanol LLC

January 28, 2019 |

In Wisconsin, Whitefox Technologies is kicking off 2019 with its fourth successful installation and start-up of its Whitefox ICE system at United Ethanol LLC’s plant in Milton, Wisconsin. United Ethanol is already experiencing positive improvements to its operations and is currently running at a 15% overall capacity increase with the capability of a further 5% increase.

The modular bolt-on system has freed up capacity in the distillation-dehydration section, which will allow the plant to increase its annual production capacity to over 60 million gallons. This is Whitefox’s second successful installation in Wisconsin, the first was at Fox River Valley Ethanol LLC in Oshkosh.

United Ethanol’s Chief Operating Officer, Chad Campbell said, “We are always looking to improve our efficiencies, reduce costs and deliver a positive impact to our local communities. The Whitefox ICE solution has helped United Ethanol attain its goals of being a low-cost producer of fuel ethanol. With the removal of bottlenecks, we have increased our throughput and at the same time made our plant more efficient and easy to operate. We also look forward to seeing the positive impact Whitefox ICE should have on the reduction in the cooling water load during the summer months.”
