Construction Begins on Ethanol Plant in Colorado

[] Front Range Energy began construction on its ethanol plant near Windsor, Colorado. The plant will process about 14 million bushels of corn into 40 million gallons of ethanol and approximately 120,000 tons of distillers’ grains annually. The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), one of the ethanol industry’s trade groups, says this plant will offer a highly sought after feed co-product for the local cattle industry in addition to meeting the increased demand for and use of ethanol in the Rocky Mountains. The plant’s general contractor, ICM (Colwich, KS), is providing the process design. Currently, 91 ethanol plants nationwide have the capacity to produce over 4 billion gallons annually. There are 17 ethanol plants and two major expansions under construction with a combined annual capacity of nearly one billion gallons.
