In late February the large backfill operations for the process, evaporation, and fermentation structures and adjacent exterior tanks were completed for Ringneck Energy’s Onida, S.D. plant.
This will be the first 70 million gallon/year plant constructed by Fagen with an ICM design. The facility, in addition to manufacturing ethanol and dried distiller grains (DDGS), has a specific marketing goal of higher wet-cake sales to accommodate local markets, with an emphasis on reduced fuel resources required while producing high protein feed stock. This should be a significant advantage for local ranching and livestock production.
