Advanced Biorefinery Proposed for Eastern North Dakota

Submitted by on August 25, 2016 – 2:45 pmNo Comment

by Ann Bailey (Ethanol Producer Magazine)  A biorefinery proposed to be built in Grand Forks, North Dakota, would transform low-value agricultural byproducts, including sugar beet tailings, wheat straw and potato waste, into biofuel. The North Dakota Ag Products Utilization Commission recently awarded the Red River BioRefinery LLC project $84,000 for engineering.

The application from (Jacek) Chmielewski, who listed his return address on the letter as Middleton, was for funding to develop a small-scale distributed advanced ethanol plant in Grand Forks that would use sugar beet tailings from the production process of four nearby American Crystal Sugar plants as feedstock for the production of fuel-grade ethanol. The application said the plant also would produce high-quality animal feed as a byproduct.

“CHS Inc. has reviewed the production plants and committed to sell and market the entire production capacity of the plant,” (Keshav) Rajpal said in the APUC application. The fuel has an above-market value because of its carbon intensity, so it primarily will be sold to markets with low carbon fuel standards in California, Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Quebec, the application said.
