Showing Our Support for the Fuel and Ethanol Industry

We’re powering up to exhibit at the 38th annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW) the “largest, longest-running ethanol conference in the world—and the only event powered by Ethanol Producer Magazine,” from June 13-15 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Ethanol Industry Content and Connections at the FEW Conference

Now in its 38th year and owned and operated by BBI International Media & Events since 1995. The FEW Conference has grown to 2,000-plus attendees and 300 exhibitors and features new research findings and new innovations for the ethanol industry. The workshop and expo are focused on commercial-scale ethanol producers and operations across the business-to-business spectrum, including regulatory compliance, quality control, yield maximization, and fiscal management.

Industrial Fan Applications Supporting the Fuel Ethanol Industry

We serve the fuel ethanol industry with reliable, high-quality centrifugal fans and blowers for key applications in their operations to keep the process air moving and protect the environment from hazardous emissions in accordance with the US Environmental Protection Act (EPA).

Across our many ethanol industry customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), we support a wide variety of industrial centrifugal fan applications, including:

Induced Draft

Induced draft fans (ID fans) handle the harsh conditions present in ethanol and other fuel industry operations, including high temperatures, acidic airstreams, and other extreme exhaust gases. They pull air and other materials or elements through the system to the next step of the process.


Oxidizer Fans: Thermal oxidizers, including regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs), provide air pollution control for ethanol production. They use industrial fans to force or draw process air through a series of chambers, turning hazardous bypass gases into water vapor before releasing the emissions into the environment.


Industrial scrubbers remove or neutralize toxic gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) and corrosive acids like ammonia (NH3), hydrochloric acid (HCI), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), nitric acid (HNO3), and sodium chloride (NaCl) from industrial exhaust emissions (flue gas). The function of the centrifugal industrial fan in the scrubber system is to transport the contaminated air from the source and through the scrubber to clean and exhaust it. It must also be extremely reliable and efficient because operations will stop without it.

Hope to See You at the FEW Conference

If you’re in the industry or if you’re an OEM that serves them, you can still register here. Come on out and look for our booth #1720 in the expo hall. Stop by any time during the show and/or connect with application engineer Kenny White and/or sales rep Brian Gordon on LinkedIn to schedule a specific time (and for future reference)!
