The American cooperative Siouxland, located in the city of Galva, Iowa, will produce cellulosic ethanol through a technology developed by Travis Brotheerson.

The biorefinery will be built next to another which already produces 35 million liters of ethanol per year, and aims to transform maize seed fibers in cellulosic ethanol.

The “Adding Cellulosic Ethanol,” or ACE is designed to make the most of every grain of corn that enters the machine, estimating that produces at least two billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol per year.

The investment for this venture will be 8.5 million and of these, 5.7 million comes from grants from the U.S. government.
