The Madera plant is a 40MGY plant that began operations in 2006. It is a highly efficient batch fermentation process designed by Delta-T. It also includes a 1.4 million bushel grain elevator with a loop track that receives corn by unit train from the Midwest. All of Madera’s products are sold locally by truck. Madera also self generates much of its electricity with an on-site 5 MW solar energy plant. The Madera facility does not dry its feed products contributing to its low carbon ethanol score through reduced natural gas demand while producing high-value high protein feed products. The ethanol is sold to customers in California and benefits from the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard which values the low carbon ethanol produced at the plant and the high-value feed products are sold to nearby dairies, feedlots, and poultry farms.
