Green Plains to further increase FCC, USP grade alcohol capacity

Published in Ethanol Producer Magazine

Green Plains Inc. on July 16 announced its subsidiary, Green Plains Wood River LLC, has installed a separate 25 million gallon facility engineered and constructed by ICM Inc. to produce FCC Grade alcohol for domestic and export markets and expects to upgrade the production process to produce USP Grade alcohol over the next four to six months.

“Leveraging our operational expertise from our decades of experience at Green Plains York, we were able to quickly enhance our production capabilities at Wood River, further demonstrating our continued commitment to help meet the increased customer demand for high purity alcohol, a key ingredient in sanitizers and disinfectants,” said Todd Becker, president and CEO. “This facility was a fully constructed system to mimic our quality at York and allows us to provide our customers with additional high-quality alcohol, distilled specifically for consumer and industrial markets.”
