CVEC to pay MPCA $120K in fines for gasifier violation

Email

BENSON -- Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company of Benson must pay $120,000 in fines to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency as part of an agreement over alleged violations involving its gasifier system.

CVEC reported Tuesday that the MPCA has accused it of unclear record keeping and tardy performance testing of its regulated emission control equipment. The primary focus of the agreement is a self-reported incident in which an unallowed feedstock was included as fuel for the gasifier.
