trials utilized the same ethanol production process that is used in standard dry-grind ethanol plants to convert non-fractionated or whole kernel corn to ethanol.
The SIMATIC[R] PCS 7 distributed control system and instrumentation from Siemens is now being used by the NCERC to help validate near-term technologies that are enhancing the economics and sustainability of renewable fuel production.
Our clients come to this facility for best-in-class, cutting edge technology," says John Caupert, director of the NCERC.
According to the NCERC, there is a growing demand for new workers in the alternative fuels industry.
The funding will allow the NCERC
, working with its research partners on this project, to better ensure the economic future of dry-grind fuel ethanol plants," said NCERC
director Martha Schlicher.
We wanted to do something which would support the main objectives of the NCERC -- to increase awareness of computer and information ethics issues, and to get everyday end users focusing on computer ethics and responsibilities.
