If you ask most ethanol producers what their biggest costs are, number one would be the cost of their feedstock, and secondly it would be the cost of energy to run their plant. These energy costs are no small thing. For example, a single 300 hp hammermill operating at 7,500 hours per year might easily rack up a power bill of over $150,000 (€140,000). This is why the...
