Whitefox ICE™ installation at Fox River exceeds expectations
Bolt-on membrane technology delivers energy and cooling water efficiency
Oshkosh WI - February 28, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Fox River Valley Ethanol LLC completed the installation of its Whitefox ICE™ bolt-on solution at its ethanol plant in Oshkosh in December and is already seeing a positive impact at the gas meter and improvements to its operations.
Neal Kemmet, Fox River President & General Manager, stated: "Following a smooth start-up of the Whitefox ICE system in December, we immediately noticed a positive impact. Energy consumption has already reduced by around 1,100 BTU per gallon and operations have improved by removing column fluctuations, and that's with only treating part of the regen stream. Our team seems to have got used to running with membranes with no issues. Our intention is to move to full regen treatment over time to further improve capacity, efficiency and profitability."
Gillian Harrison, Whitefox CEO, said: "It was great working with Neal and his team. Fox River are focussed on using the latest technology to improve their plant and his team clearly thrives on improving operations. The joint efforts of Fox River, Nelson Engineering and our team, made this installation a real success. It is satisfying to know that Fox and Whitefox are making ethanol made in Wisconsin even better."
The Whitefox ICE™ installation at Fox River is the third installation in the US, with a fourth being built for United Ethanol. A Whitefox ICE™ system treats existing recycle streams to free up distillation-dehydration, reduce energy by 1,000-2,500 BTU per gallon, carbon emissions and cooling and increase capacity by up to 20%.
