Chippewa Valley Ethanol getting creative on ways to power expansion

November 19, 2018 |

In Minnesota, Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company and BioPro are trying to convince local authorities to let it by a small piece of a wider industrial site and take over the former power plant building located on that site in order to produce steam from corn cobs that will allow the ethanol plant to expand its production. The entire site has been spoken for by another company that wishes to produce renewable natural gas from dairy and other farm waste but has no need for the former power plant facilities nor the small piece of land it sits on. The team of companies has hit a number of obstacles in trying to secure the land and facility but they hope that by convincing local authorities to let them have it, they could create a triple win situation for the community.
