From Biofuel Production
The principals of PESCO-BEAM have built and operated ethanol production facilities since 1980. At peak production, we processed and sold over 12 million gallons per year of anhydrous fuel ethanol blended with gasoline in service stations such as Racetrack, Wilco, Citgo and others throughout the Mid-Atlantic states of the USA.
PESCO-BEAM's Ethanol plants have made ethanol from industrial sugar and starch wastes and agricultural crops.
They have been built of Stainless Steel, and includ state of the art automation.
The Ethanol plants included innovations such as modern high rate anaerobic waste treatment systems which generated methane gas and liquid fertilizer which fertilized the surrounding fields.
One plant researched and developed processes to convert ligno-cellulosic residue from forestry and agriculture into ethanol and other high value products.
Farm Scale Ethanol systems, when combined with a feedlot, provides greater financial gain and environmental benefit than a standard corn to ethanol plant. By integrating the systems of cattle, ethanol, and energy production from manure, the farmer solves many waste issues while increasing revenue flows.
Combining a feedlot with manure treatment/heat production and an ethanol plant offers efficiencies that make corn based ethanol production far more profitable and good for the environment than typical corn based ethanol production.
PESCO-BEAM is happy to offer analysis, design, construction, and continued services to farmers that want to add value to their farm while helping the environment.
Lately it is debated weather corn ethanol is either profitable or good for the environment. We feel these are reasonable concerns. By combining a feedlot with manure treatment/heat production and an ethanol plant you overcome these concerns in a graceful manner.
Cellulosic ethanol technology has been brewing for over a decade. With numerous commercial scale ethanol plants breaking ground, 2008 will be a turning point for the cellulosic bio-fuel industry.
PESCO-BEAM is ready to contribute to the growth of the cellulose bio-fuel industry with its design-build construction and engineering services. We are energized and equipped to build medium and large ethanol and other bio-fuel facilities. Optimally, we like to establish long-term business relationships with strategic partners.
PESCO-BEAM has over 50 successful environmentally responsive installations from Australia to Antigua, USA and India, representing a wide variety of recovery and bio-fuel technologies. You can maximize your business investment by collaborating with a company with 25+ years of global environmental engineering experience. PESCO-BEAM is implementing state-of-the-art technologies that allow business to be good for the environment as well as profitable.
