California Ethanol + Power begins recruiting farmers to grow 20,000 acres of cane

In California, California Ethanol + Power announced it will engage with the local Imperial Valley farming communities to secure formal commitments to grow the first 20,000 acres of sugarcane feedstock for Sugar Valley Energy, a planned low-carbon ethanol production and biomass energy campus set to begin construction in 2021. Located near the city of Brawley, the 160-acre project is designed to produce 68 million gallons of low-carbon sugarcane ethanol annually, includes a 49 Megawatt biomass power generation island with related infrastructure, and will be the first facility of its kind to be built in the United States of America.
