All the ethanol plants that belong to the Minnesota Biofuels Association have committed to have a net-zero or net-negative carbon intensity score by 2050. Executive Director Brian Werner says there are several ways to achieve that goal. “One is doing energy efficiency measures at the plants; one is working with our feedstock growers to make sure that we’re lowering the carbon intensity score of the corn that’s being grown,” Werner told RRFN. “The last one is what do we do with the carbon dioxide from the fermentation process.” Werner was a speaker at MN Ag Expo.
