Mid America Agri Products – Wheatland LLC Receives EPA Approval for Cellulosic Ethanol Using Edeniq’s Technology

Submitted by on December 5, 2017 – 6:21 pmNo Comment

(Edeniq/Business Wire)  Edeniq, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved Mid America Agri Products – Wheatland LLC’s (MAAPW) registration to produce cellulosic ethanol at its ethanol production facility in Madrid, Neb. using Edeniq’s Pathway technology. The 48 million gallon per year MAAPW facility began using Edeniq’s Pathway technology this month.

“We are thrilled that Mid America Agri Products has joined the growing list of ethanol plants that have received EPA approval to use our company’s technology to produce cellulosic ethanol,” said Brian Thome, president and chief executive officer of Edeniq. “Edeniq’s technology remains the lowest-cost solution for producing and measuring cellulosic ethanol and we remain committed to helping our customers add value to their platforms.”

Edeniq’s technology enables co-production of starch ethanol and cellulosic ethanol at existing corn ethanol production facilities. The company’s Pathway technology uses enzymes that maximize conversion of corn kernel fiber into fermentable sugar with a protocol to measure the output of cellulosic ethanol production. In order for an ethanol plant to generate cellulosic renewable identification numbers (RINs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), it must first receive registration approval from the EPA for its cellulosic production.

“Not only will Edeniq’s Pathway technology increase our ethanol yield with the additional production of cellulosic ethanol, Edeniq was key in helping us get the proper approvals we needed from the EPA,” said Robert Barnhouse, controller with MAAPW. “We are looking forward to being a part of the next generation of biofuels production.”
