Dakota Spirit AgEnergy is the new biorefinery to be co-located next to Spiritwood Station combined heat and power plant near Jamestown, ND.
The biorefinery will utilize steam from Spiritwood Station to produce 65 MGY ethanol, distillers grains and fuel-grade corn oil. Future growth opportunities for the biorefinery are emerging with cellulosic, isobutanol and other biofuel technologies.
Midwest AgEnergy Group, an upper Midwest biofuels enterprise, owns Blue Flint Ethanol, an existing 65 MGY ethanol biorefinery near Underwood, ND, and Dakota Spirit AgEnergy, this new 65 MGY biorefinery.
Great River Energy is leading the development of this enterprise along with key stakeholders including Jamestown Stutsman Development Corporation, Karges-Faulconbridge, Inc., McGough Construction and Cappello Capital Corp.
