    Capital & Maintenance Projects

    Industrial Info's team of industry researchers actively monitor planned, unplanned ongoing and future maintenance events in ethanol plants, biodiesel and renewable diesel units across all of North America and South America.

    Each maintenance event is tracked with precise details of when the unit will come offline, the cause of the downtime if unplanned and when the unit will restart normal operations. Alerts via email and subscriber tools are available for each event, providing our clients with up-to-date progress of the maintenance event, including schedule changes or other details. These are delivered for each event as changes are verified and confirmed.

Segments We Cover

Fuel Ethanol Manufacturing Market (DDG & Corn Oil)

All corn and sugar cane based fuel ethanol plants that also include the production of by-products distillers dried grains and solubles (DDG) a high protein feed additivie plus corn oil used as feedstock for biodiesel production.

Biodiesel & Renewable Diesel

Biodiesel, Renewable Diesel and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production from vegetable oils, used cooking oil, animal fats and even biomass. By-products of production also include the refining of glycerin.

Biorefineries (G2 & G3 Production)

Biorefineries that produce ethanol and renewable transportation fuel from second and third generation feedstocks meaning production from non-food feedstocks. G2 feedstocks include corn stover and bagesse material, wood chips and wood waste, cow manure, energy grassess, and tobacco. G3 feedstocks include algae, algae oil and seaweed.

Gasification (SynGas Production)

Facilities that gasify and liquify coal into syngas that is thermos-chemically transformed to produce diesel, gasoline, syngas and other fuels using Fischer-Tropsch and other technologies. Syngas can used as an alternative gas instead of burning fossil fuels.

Fuel Pellet Production

Facilities that manufacture fuel pellets from wood, grasses, and other biomass fired power generation, boilers and home heating.


Refers to a mixture of different gases manily a substitute for natural gas produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, known as anaerobic digesters. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source.
