Pacific Ethanol to Use Edeniq Milling Technology to Boost Output

Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Pacific Ethanol Inc., a U.S. biofuel producer, is seeking to increase production at a California plant using technology from Edeniq Inc.

Pacific Ethanol expects to boost yields by 2 percent to 4 percent using Edeniq’s milling system, which converts corn and other plant feedstock materials into particles that are processed into fuel more efficiently, the Sacramento, California-based company said today in a statement.

The company will install the so-called Cellunator technology this quarter at its plant in Stockton, California. It will also use another Edeniq system that increases corn-oil recovery, according to the statement.

Pacific Ethanol has four plants in California, Oregon and Idaho that produce a total of 200 million gallons (758 million liters) of fuel a year. The Stockton site’s annual capacity is 60 million gallons.

Edeniq, based in Visalia, California, received a $3.9 million grant in June from the California Energy Commission to develop cellulosic ethanol production technology, according to the statement.
