CALGREN. our vision

Calgren began continuously producing ethanol August 8, 2009. With our groundbreaking design, the plant is one of the most efficient operations and lowest carbon footprint facilities in the country. The plant is powered by an ultra-low NOx gas turbine generator capable of producing 5,800 KW of electricity, the exhaust of which makes process steam. We will achieve our goals through serving local needs. Each year 55 million gallons of ethanol will be trucked to Central Valley fuel blenders; 400,000 tons per year of WDGS animal feed will provide an attractively priced source of protein and nutrients to local dairies and feedlots; 1.5 million gallons of corn oil will serve local poultry producers and bio-diesel facilities; and we will bring new, high-quality jobs to the community.

Our vision is also on the future. We are investigating and evaluating alternative feed stocks, including wastes and cellulose. The cogeneration turbine is capable of operating on methane gas from local waste lagoons.
