"Ethanol in Fuels -- A Dry Grind Corn Biorefiner's Perspective"
Dr. Vincent Kwasniewski is vice president of business development and commercial director at GTL Resources USA.


Illinois River Energy, LLC, owned by GTL Resources USA, Inc., operates a dry mill, corn-based biorefinery which produces fuel grade ethanol, wet and dry distiller's grains, and inedible corn oil that is utilized in the production of biodiesel and the animal feed market. The plant is located in Rochelle, IL. Dr. Kwasniewski has discussed this process as an example of a real-world commercial facility that conveys the size and scale of current industry practice as well as actual plant performance relevant to both the economics of the business and the public policy debate around biofuels.
