Greenfield Ethanol (Hensall) Inc.

(1) Name and address of proponent:
Greenfield Ethanol (Hensall) Inc., 20 Toronto Street, Toronto, ON, M5C 2B8

(2) Latitude and longitude of proposed facility:
43o 26' 25" N,   81o 30' 38" W

(3) Distance to the Canada/U.S. border:
60 km

(4) Brief description of the proposed project (major products, process, capacity, etc):
The proposed facility is a fuel grade ethanol plant with a nominal production of 210 million litres per year. The plant is to be located in Hensall, Ontario. Ethanol is produced from the fermentation of starch from corn with yeast, followed by distillation and dehydration. The byproducts of the process include spent grains and carbon dioxide. THe spent grains are marketed for animal feed either in a wet form for local farmers or as a dried product for more distant customers. Carbon dioxide is recovered and compressed on site by an industrial gas supplier for shipment to customers.

(5) For combustion processes, list capacity (tonnes/year), fuel type and grade:
Capacity: 35,000 tonnes/year Fuel Type: Natural gas, CAS No. 8006-14-2 Fuel Grade: N/A

(6) Contact for technical and design information:
Mr. Martin Kazmir,
Phone Number:  (519) 354-0397  
Fax Number:      (519) 354-1163

(7) Estimated annual quantities of the following pollutants released to the atmosphere (tonnes per year):

SO2 :           42.6
PM :            44.5
NOx :           94.3
VOC :           96.6
CO :            95.3

(8) List hazardous air pollutants with emissions estimates (tonnes/year) for any hazardous pollutants with expected annual emission rates of greater than 1 tonne per year:
Contaminant: CAS No. - Emissions estimate (tones/year) Acetaldehyde: 75-07-0 - 11.42 Hexane: 110-54-3 - 2.59 Toluene: 108-88-3 - 3.04 Xylenes: 1330-20-7 - 10.85
