IGPC produces 200 million liters of ethanol annually and their distillers grains are marketed and trucked out to area beef, dairy and pork operations. IGPC’s commitment to sustainability has always been important to the company. In 2014 they added a one mega-watt (MW) multi-stage back pressure Steam Turbine Generator (STG). The STG will generate electricity from the steam while achieving the reduction in steam pressure. They also have a second project underway, which is a three mega-watt (MW) Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). This ICE will generate power in conjunction with the STG. IGPC also recently completed a Detailed Engineering Study (DES) of their cooling system, including chiller and cooling towers.
Tyler Moore, Excecutive Vice President of ERTH Corporation, was pleased to honour two deserving companies with the ERTH Award saying, “This year’s winners are leaders in ERTH’s shareholder communities. Their dedication to sustainability has not only helped Erie Thames Powerlines reach its conservation targets and be a leader in the industry, but has also shown that an investment in conservation and sustainability will help our community survive and thrive in the future.”
