Reason For Sale:
The equipment belongs to Badger State Ethanol which operates a grain processing facility that produces 90 million gallons per year of ethanol along with co-products of carbon dioxide, corn oil and animal feed/heating pellets. The feedstock for the pelletizing plant came from the production of ethanol. The remaining DDGS was then either processed into pellets and/or sold in bulk to local consumers. The pelletizing and other surplus equipment is being auctioned due to the plants expansion and optimization going from 40 to 60 to now 90 million gallons per year of ethanol production.
