CVEC

Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company (CVEC) is a 46 MM gpy corn ethanol plant located on the western edge of town. CVEC's 975 cooperative owners live predominately within a 50 mile radius of the plant site. Since its beginning in 1996, the CVEC organization has established a reputation for efficient operation and for policy leadership at both the state and federal level. CVEC is also known for its many unique products like Shakers Vodka.

CVEC is currently working with Frontline BioEnergy, an Iowa technology company, to integrate biomass gasification technology to provide thermal energy for its corn ethanol process. When this project is completed, CVEC will have replaced over 90% of its natural gas energy inputs with biomass from corn cobs and other residues, grasses and wood.
