Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction, operation, and maintenance of a bio-refinery that will convert 170 tons per day of cellulosic material (curbside green waste, post sorted green waste, non-marketable paper fractions and wood) from the neighboring landfill and other sources (i.e., municipal recycling facilities with chipping and grinding facilities) to ethanol. The operation will produce 7,600 to 11,675 gallons of fuel grade ethanol per day and two byproducts that will be transported offsite, gypsum and spent yeast. The plant will operate 24 hours a day, 330 days per year. A total of 18 employees will work three shifts with a maximum of five employees per shift. The project will generate 15,548 yearly vehicle trips for transporting feedstock, ethanol, byproducts, chemicals and employees. The facility consists of two acre evaporation basin; 1.4 acre biomass storage area; retention/detention basin; related processing equipment, storage tanks and small buildings; truck scale; single story maintenance and lab buildings; and a two-story administration building. Access to the subject property will be provided by East Avenue F and Fifth Street East. A feedstock access road will be located at the northeast corner of the project site.
