Highwater Ethanol has begun Phase 1 operation in partnership with Butamax; agreement on bio-butanol production to come

22 August 2014

Highwater Ethanol, which is retrofitting its corn ethanol plant in Lamberton, Minnesota in partnership with Butamax Advanced Biofuels LLC (the joint venture between DuPont and BP for the production of bio-isobutanol, earlier post) began operation of the Butamax corn oil separation system as Phase 1 of the Butamax partnership in mid-April.

Butamax’s patented corn oil separation technology is an integral part of a full retrofit to biobutanol production but can also be installed independently as a first phase of the conversion.

Highwater said that it is working towards definitive agreements for Phase 2 for the potential installation of Butamax’ biobutanol technology.

Butamax reached agreement with Fagen Inc. for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of this project and as part of Butamax’s vision for roll-out of its full biobutanol production technology.
