Ethanol from Fermentation

Since 2021, many ethanol plants in the Midwest have announced that they will utilize carbon capture
and storage to become bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) projects. BECCS is a key technology required to control emissions from fuel production and use. Currently, only around two metric tons of biogenic carbon dioxide are captured globally per year, relative to the 250-metric-ton removal required per year by 2030 for the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario. Ethanol plants in the Midwest have a tremendous opportunity to prove to the world that BECCS can be done. EcoEngineers is helping make this happen.

Our team of geologists, market analysts, and engineers has deep knowledge of the ethanol industry and experience managing capital-intensive projects. From helping with the technical aspects of subsurface gas storage to managing compliance and stacking carbon market credits with tax credits to achieve optimum economics, our work is critical to our ethanol clients as they take advantage of this opportunity.
