Valero's Linden ethanol plant is located near Linden, Indiana, about 60 miles
northwest of Indianapolis. The biorefinery sits on approximately 80 acres and
started ethanol production in August 2007. The facility uses a dry-grind
production method and state-of-the-art technology to maintain industry-leading
standards in production, safety, product quality and environmental stewardship.
The Linden plant annually processes approximately 46 million bushels of corn into 130
million gallons of denatured ethanol and 385,000 tons of distillers grains
co-products. The biorefinery
employs approximately 70 full-time personnel.
The entire kernel of
corn is converted to ethanol or distillers grains. Ethanol is an environmentally
friendly, high-octane renewable fuel produced by fermenting converted corn
starch with yeast. It is used as a blending agent with gasoline. Distillers
grains are the co-product left after the ethanol is removed from fermented corn
mash, and are sold as a valuable livestock feed. Distillers grains are high in
protein, fat, vitamins and minerals, making an excellent feed supplement for
beef and dairy cattle, swine and poultry. The Linden plant markets both dried
distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) and modified (or wet) distillers grains
with solubles (MDGS).
