Course Description

RNEW.1185 - Ethanol Process Fundamentals Lab (1)
Provides hands-on exposure to the rational and overall fundamental process of ethanol production. A Process Flow Diagram (PFD) of a typical dry mill ethanol plant will be used to examine the sequence of operation, including residence time, pressures, and temperatures seen in various stages of production. This course will explain the rationale for feedstock and additives used in ethanol processing as well as product and co-product production and use. This lab course, geared toward on-campus students, will fulfill one of the technical elective credits for the Renewable Energy Technology Program.
