|NCERC Pilot Plant
From biofuels to bioprocess and beyond, the Center's modern 24,000 square-foot pilot plant can be adapted to meet the needs of any project. The pilot plant, equivalent to a 1/250th scale ethanol production facility, operates at a 100-400 bushel per day capacity and offers continuous or batch run operation. A Siemens PCS 7 distributed control system offers continual and historical-run data to analyze processes, technology and/or design.
The plant is equipped to handle a variety of feedstocks, with a modular, plug-and-play design and a wide range of options for optimal process flexibility. A state-of-the-art dry fractionation system, designed by Cereal Process Technologies, can be adapted to suit a variety of feedstocks and processes to meet the unique needs of your project.
The pilot plant is staffed with an experienced team of engineers and lead operators who are veterans in the industry and can offer additional input to help increase return on investment when it comes to design and processing technology.
