Animal feed equipment, technology suppliers partner on renewable energy

Companies plan 'field-to-fuel' biofuels program

CPM, a supplier of process equipment and technology for the animal feed, oilseed, biofuels and human food-processing industries, and Pellet Technology LLC announce the formation of a strategic alliance that will help bring sustainable, renewable energy to electric utilities and biofuels producers.

Pellet Technology has developed a complete supply chain solution for biomass users that includes feedstock supply contracting, harvest management and production technology to turn corn stover into PowerPellets on an economic and environmentally sound basis, according to the company. Under the agreement, the two companies will work together to market Pellet Technology’s biomass engineering processes along with CPM’s hammermills and pellet mills. Together, they plan to implement a “field-to-fuel” program that provides electric utilities and biofuels producers with an affordable and reliable source of renewable energy.
