Adding Cellulosic Ethanol
(ACE)
Quad County Corn Processors
IRFA Summit January 28, 2014
What is Adding Cellulosic Ethanol (ACE)?

ACE gets more out of the kernel of corn you purchase/process

ACE bolts on to existing Dry Grind ethanol plants

ACE adds significant income to corn processing

Quad County Corn Processors will complete its full scale facility in April, 2014

Existing Dry Grind plants can provide significant cellulosic fuel for the RFS

Plans are being finalized to commercialize the patented process

Process yield changes/bu. of corn

Additional 0.16(6%) gal of cellulosic ethanol

Additional 1.1#(220%) of corn oil

Decreased feed pounds by 15%
Bolt on ACE technology

Facility continues to operate throughout construction

Tie-ins to utilities take place during your planned shut-down
Corn Kernel Fiber industry implications

Cellulose, Hemicellulose, Lignin

Capable of generating 2 Billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol

EPA proposed rule clarification classifies as Ag Residue under RFS rules

When EPA proposed rule is final, ethanol will qualify for D3 RIN
ACE implementation

Quad County Corn Processors facility completion – April 2014

Quad County Corn Processors start-up – May 2014

Anticipate maximizing starch in fermentation after start-up


Higher alcohol levels will reduce energy

Additional capacity in base plant
Commercialization strategy is in final stages

