60 MMgy Idaho ethanol plant begins distillers corn oil extraction

By Ron Kotrba | June 04, 2013

Pacific Ethanol Inc. has begun commercial production of distillers corn oil at its 60 MMgy ethanol plant in Magic Valley, Idaho. The company is using ICM Inc.’s trademarked Advanced Oil Separation System to extract the oil.

“Corn oil is a high value coproduct with multiple markets including animal feed and biodiesel,” said Neil Koehler, the company’s president and CEO. “Corn oil sales at our Magic Valley plant diversifies our revenue streams, providing greater financial stability to the plant, and is expected to contribute as much as $4.5 million or seven cents per gallon of operating income annually.”
