Ethanol Operation Considering Barley for Biofuel, Fish Food

Submitted by on July 3, 2018 – 4:14 pmNo Comment

by Jessica Holdman (Bismark Tribune)  … The North Dakota Industrial Commission approved an $83,810 Renewable Energy Program grant to Midwest AgEnergy Group to research using North Dakota barley for biofuel and a high value protein concentrate byproduct to sell to commercial fisheries.

“It’s a higher value market than where we’re currently participating at this time,” when compared to cattle feed, said Jeff Zueger, CEO for Midwest AgEnergy Group, adding that the company is continuously looking for best and additional uses at its Jamestown and Underwood plants.

The concept for the barley biofuel was developed and has been pilot tested by Montana Microbial Products, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Zueger said.

This phase of Midwest AgEnergy Group’s project would study the feasibility and conduct initial engineering and design work for scaling production to a commercial level, producing 50 times the 30 tons per month made by the Montana company.

The Legislature established the Renewable Energy Program in 2007 to provide funding for research, development, marketing and education to grow renewable energy, including wind, biofuels, biomass, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal and hydrogen.    READ MORE
