Glacial Lakes Energy Begins Ethanol Production

by Julianne Johnston

Glacial Lakes Energy LLC held their grand opening ceremony Sunday, two months ahead of schedule. The plant is located on roughly 43 acres near Watertown, South Dakota. The plant will convert more than 13.5 million bushels of corn into approximately 40 million gallons of ethanol and 128,000 tons of distillers dried grains annually. The plant will employ 34 full time workers.

“The demand from our plant is expected to add approximately 10 cents to every bushel of corn in our area,” said Tom Branhan, Glacial Lakes Energy general manager. “This is great news for all farmers – not just the 800-plus who invested directly in the ethanol plant. We believe in building for the future. That’s why we included a thermal oxidizer in the original design. Given the likelihood of new EPA regulations for the industry that decision proved highly beneficial. We also had the plant designed for easy expansion if warranted in the future. We want to thank Fagen and ICM for bringing the plant online ahead of schedule.”

There are currently 66 ethanol plants operating in the United States and 11 plants under construction.
