Encouraging numbers for corn oil feedstock

Panel speakers discussed back-end coproduct optimization for ethanol plants at the 2010 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo in St. Louis last week. In recent times, more biodiesel producers have incorporated use of post-fermentation corn oil, extracted from ethanol plant stillage, as a biodiesel feedstock. The chief technology officer for Greenshift Corp., David Winsness, said only about 4 MMgy of post-ferm corn oil was being extracted from whole stillage at U.S. ethanol plants in May 2007. Two years later, however, that number grew to 33 MMgy. By May 2010 as much as 44 MMgy of post-ferm corn oil was removed and sold as biodiesel feedstock or for other uses. Winsness said by 2022, it is expected that up to 680 MMgy of post-ferm corn oil will be siphoned from the back-end of U.S. ethanol plants.READ MORE
