Badger State Ethanol, LLC is beginning an expansion project. The ethanol plant is located in Monroe, Wisconsin, and the improvements will enable the facility to increase ethanol production and performance. When the expansion is completed, ethanol production and co-product output will increase by 45 percent. In addition, the plant is increasing energy efficiency through several projects that will result in a reduction of natural gas usage per gallon by an estimated 20 percent.
The project is a collaboration between Badger State Ethanol and Scott Lucas of LE3, and is slated for completion by the end of first quarter 2017.
