Biofuel- Ethanol Production



ETHANOL PRODUCTION PROCESS

BIOFUEL- ETHANOL PRODUCTION MAP

Ethanol plants in 29 states churned out a record 14.3 billion gallons of ethanol in 2014. What’s more, the first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol production facilities began producing the next generation of biofuels. Click here to view a map of all the U.S. biorefinery locations. ethanolrfa.org

BIOFUEL- ETHANOL PROD DRYMILL

 

icminc.com/innovation

Ethanol is commercially produced using either a wet mill or dry mill process. Wet milling involves separating the grain kernel into its component parts (germ, fiber, protein, and starch) prior to fermentation. ICM-designed plants utilize the dry mill process, where the entire grain kernel is ground into flour. The starch in the flour is converted to ethanol during the fermentation process, creating carbon dioxide and distillers grain.  Read the details of each step>>
