Pacific Ethanol to implement corn oil technology at its Stockton ethanol plant

Pacific Ethanol Inc. will implement corn oil separation technology at its Stockton plant, making it the the second Pacific Ethanol plant to utilize the technology. In June 2012, the company announced the implementation of corn oil separation technology at its Magic Valley plant.

The company awarded Edeniq, a biomaterials and sustainable fuels company, a contract for its patented OilPlus technology, which is expected to be implemented at the Stockton plant by the second quarter of 2013.

Oil-Plus is the highest yielding, syrup-stream corn oil extraction (COE) process in the industry, combining thermal, mechanical and chemical treatment to deliver cost-effective yields in the range of 0.6 lbs/bushel, according to Edeniq.

Pacific Ethanol provides transportation, storage and delivery of ethanol through third-party service providers in the Western United States, primarily in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Colorado, Idaho and Washington. Pacific Ethanol has a 67% ownership interest in New PE Holdco LLC, the owner of four ethanol production facilities. Pacific Ethanol operates and manages the four ethanol production facilities, which have a combined annual production capacity of 200 million gallons. The facilities in operation are located in Boardman, Oregon, Burley, Idaho and Stockton, California, and one idled facility is located in Madera, California.
