Great River Energy continues to go step-by-step through the thousands of details of siting a commercial-scale cellulosic biomass refinery.
Sandra Broekema, GRE’s manager of business development, is overseeing the steps toward the Dakota Spirit AgEnergy biorefinery, which will be located adjacent to GRE’s heat and power plant.
Great River Energy presented its plans to develop the country’s first biorefinery near Spiritwood at the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board meeting Monday.
Greg Ridderbusch, GRE’s vice president of business development and strategy, and Sandra Broekema, GRE’s manager of business development, explained the steps the company’s taking. A Danish company, Inbicon A/S, has developed the technology to manufacture cellulosic ethanol, Broekema said. It has a demonstration plant making ethanol from wheat straw in Kalundborg, Denmark.
Great River Energy unveiled plans Wednesday in Jamestown for a first-of-its-kind $300 million biorefin-ery near its power plant, Spiritwood Station, 10 miles east of the city.
