Genesis Ethanol I was a prototype micro ethanol plant built in 2008 with several innovative concepts. Genesis Ethanol I purchased corn locally and sold its distiller grain by products locally, thereby greatly reducing transportation costs and delivering a consistent product. In addition, the facility was designed with energy-saving components unique to its design in an effort to reduce energy costs. Initially, the plant was to be the first born in a series of similar plants throughout the region. The plant was built with typical automation and monitoring with multiple security cameras placed strategically on-site. Summit Green Energy, the builder and managing partner, intended to capitalize on economies of scale by running multiple plants within the region. Although the micro ethanol plant began operations, it was not able to sustain its momentum with overwhelming external factors affecting the industry as well as some operational issues.
