Tharaldson Ethanol Plant
Tharaldson Ethanol is the fourth plant to come on line in North Dakota and the state’s largest by output volume. This $200 million plant currently turns 54 million bushels of corn into about 150 MMgy of ethanol and 450,000 tons of DDG. Tharaldson Ethanol capitalizes on several unique production efficiencies, including use of Fargo, North Dakota’s treated wastewater and being one of the first ethanol plants to employ a steam dryer, which utilizes steam generated by the plant’s boiler to reduce energy costs.
NTI provided geotechnical and construction materials testing and engineering services on this project.
