ETHANOL FACILITY PURCHASE AND START-UP
Pinnacle has assisted a number of clients in evaluating potential contamination and environmental compliance issues associated with acquisitions of industrial properties, including ethanol facilities. As an example, services conducted by Pinnacle at the time of transfer for a client that was purchasing an idled ethanol production facility.
PINNACLE AND RFA
Pinnacle Engineering supports the renewable fuels industry not only through the breadth of services provided to our producer clients, but also through active involvement in the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), the national trade association for the U.S. fuel ethanol industry. The RFA promotes policies, regulations, and research and development initiatives that lead to the increased production and use of fuel ethanol; its membership includes a broad cross-selection of businesses, individuals, and organizations dedicated to the expansion of the U.S. ethanol industry.
WASTEWATER ENGINEERING SERVICES
Pinnacle Engineering was retained by a leading producer and marketer of ethanol and related products to assist the client with wastewater related issues at one of its ethanol facilities. Due to economic conditions in the ethanol market, construction of the facility had been sporadic, resulting in a number of noncompliance issues related to wastewater collection, storage, treatment, and conveyance.
