Nearly 60 ethanol plant managers attended the second Process Optimization Seminar held in Indianapolis this week. The interactive seminar is a team effort of Fremont Industries, Fermentis, Novozymes and Phibro Ethanol Performance Group.
“All four of us companies got together and realized a need to provide training for plants,” said Steve Rust with Fremont. “So we decided to provide this for them where each of us share our expertise on how we can help plants optimize their process.”
Their first seminar was held last year in Minneapolis and Rust says they will be having another one later this year in Kansas City. “We try to move them around the country,” Rust says. Because the seminars are very interactive, the number of participants is limited to about 60. The seminar is targeted at all levels of ethanol plant management, including operations, technical, lab and general managers.
The Kansas City seminar will be held September 1-2 and registration will be open on July 1.
