Al-Corn Clean Fuel LLC - Air Permit

We invite you to comment on the draft air quality permit for Al-Corn Clean Fuel LLC

Al-Corn Clean Fuel LLC is a fuel grade dry-mill ethanol plant. The facility uses corn to produce fuel-grade ethanol. Volatile organic compounds are emitted by fermentation, distillation, and other processes. Particulate matter and other pollutants are emitted by the grain drying, cooling, handling, and receiving. Combustion is an additional source of emissions. Emissions are controlled by a variety of equipment throughout the facility. 

This permit action authorizes construction and operation of new equipment to support an increase in ethanol production, revised permit limits, and adds new equipment for the production and shipment of 190 proof or 200 proof ethanol for hand sanitizer or surface sanitizer at the facility. This permit action also changes the facility ownership and name from Al-Corn Clean Fuel to Al-Corn Clean Fuel, LLC, and revises performance test due dates to incorporate requested extensions. 

An air quality operating permit is required for certain existing facilities or the construction of new facilities that have the potential to emit a significant level of any regulated pollutant. The permit includes all requirements for operation and procedures, applicable rules, emission standards, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting. If additional conditions change and modifications are necessary, the MPCA may review and amend the permit.
