Iowa company invests in DDGS drying technology

By | August 04, 2008
Iowa Corn Opportunities LLC, a company owned by the Iowa Corn Growers Association, has made an investment in Cellencor Corp.'s microwave drying process for distillers grains. The microwave technology reduces drying time by dehydrating the feedstock from the inside out, saving ethanol producers up to 20 percent of operating costs. Although Cellencor's main focus is the corn-based ethanol industry, the system also dries other feedstocks.
