Northeast Biofuels Selects Penetron to Protect its Concrete Structures

Share Article

Penetron is selected to protect the concrete structures at the $200 million dollar Northeast Biofuels ethanol plant in Fulton, New York.

A new $200 million dollar ethanol production facility called Northeast Biofuels located in Fulton, New York is expected to be the largest ethanol production facility in the United States.

Ethanol production plants are typically associated with locations in the Midwest states where the corn necessary for manufacture is plentiful. However, the developers and the project's supporters alike believe the New York facility will be a major part of ethanol's expansion beyond the Midwest corn-states. Northeast Biofuels estimates that it will use 41 million bushels of corn annually, most of it purchased from New York farmers, to produce 114 million gallons of ethanol. The ethanol will be marketed for use primarily in New York State and the Northeast as a clean burning, oil saving gasoline additive.

On her recent visit to the facility, Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton was quoted as saying, "Northeast Biofuels is a huge step towards the energy future of New York and the nation. This plant is not only good for consumers of oil and gas and for the environment, it also has important implications for the growth of the local economy."

Designed by Lurgi, a number of the concrete structures at this facility were approved to be treated with Penetron Admix to ensure that these critical components were properly protected from water intrusion and other damaging effects. Christopher Chen, Director of North American Sales and Marketing for ICS Penetron International stated, "in keeping with our corporate philosophy of environmental protection, Penetron is extremely proud to be a part of the construction solutions at Northeast Biofuels and its efforts to address the environmental mandate to reduce our nations' impact on our global climate."
