Idaho Ethanol Processing to undergo improvements

By | September 08, 2008
Idaho Ethanol Processing Inc., a 5 MMgy ethanol plant in Caldwell, Idaho, that closed in 2004 will undergo changes after ED&F Man Group reopened the facility in 2007.

Improvements will cost $3 million to $5 million, and are expected to boost production 30 percent by targeting pinch points in the old plant and focusing on improved energy efficiency. The facility, being leased from J.R. Simplot, uses potato, beverage and sugar industry waste as feedstocks.
