This week’s Member Spotlight falls on Midwest AgEnergy’s Blue Flint Ethanol facility located in Underwood, N.D.
Midwest AgEnergy’s Blue Flint facility started production in 2007 and in April of 2011 they became a member of Growth Energy. Blue Flint, which is named after the corn produced by the Native Americans in the area centuries ago, produces 75 million gallons of ethanol annually which is a 50 percent increase above name plate capacity. They have gone 11 years with no time lost accidents which is the result of a strong commitment to safety and operational excellence by all of their employees. Year after year, they have expanded production and have even expanded the company, adding a second facility, Dakota Spirit, in 2015. Both facilities are operated by Midwest AgEnergy Group.
