DVCC receives final permit

By | July 01, 2002
South Dakota state officials have issued a permit for Dakota Value Capture Cooperative (DVCC), a combination ethanol plant and cattle feedlot in Sully County north of Pierre. The permit from the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources is the last of nine federal and state permits required for Dakota Value Capture Cooperative to operate, co-op officials said. The proposed $64 million operation would include a 20 mmgy ethanol plant and a 28,000-head cattle feedlot. Odor and manure from the feedlot would be converted into methane to be burned at the ethanol plant.
