Gas company Linde announced today the start-up of its 600 ton/day carbon dioxide plant produced from Sunoco’s ethanol plant (housed in a former brewery) in Fulton, NY, 23 miles north of Syracuse.
Linde says Sunoco’s 100m gal/year ethanol plant is the largest ethanol facility in the Northeast, which uses 41 million bushels of corn. The CO2 from the facility is capture, process and sold for use in food, beverage and chemical manufacturing. The liquefied CO2 will be sold to Linde’s customers in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New England.
Linde has over 30 CO2 plants in the US.
