Ethanol Coalition Aids Cellulosic Plant In Getting EPA Rule Change

Ethanol Coalition Aids Cellulosic Plant In Getting EPA Rule Change

On Monday, Groundbreaking was held in Galva, Iowa for Quad County’s new cellulosic ethanol facility that uses the fiber for the corn kernel to produce the fuel.  The American Coalition for Ethanol aided plant officials in getting a government rule change. ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings says that allowed Quad County Processors to move forward with their technology.

He says Quad County’s cellulosic processing is unique and once completed the plant will be one of the first of its type in the world.

Jennings says this cellulosic ethanol plant is an example of how the Renewable Fuel Standard is working.

He  says this goes to show the RFS can be kept intact while producing a multitude of biofuels.
