NPPD Considers Integrated Ethanol and Electricity Production

June 17, 2008

Nebraska Public Power District is considering an investment in a Combined Heat and Power pilot project at one of Nebraska’s 21 operating ethanol plants. The project will use gases, heat and other byproducts of the ethanol production process to generate electricity.

Visit the Nebraska Ethanol Board website at http://www.ethanol.nebraska.gov/industry/ethplants.htm for a map of ethanol plants.
