Co-generation helps ADM use energy
more efficiently


Worldwide, ADM operates a total of 12 co-generation facilities—four in the U.S., one in Brazil, and seven in Europe.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, co-generation plants that produce both steam and electricity from a single fuel source require less fuel to produce a given energy output, and avoid transmission and distribution losses that occur when electricity travels over power lines. In addition, co-gen systems, also known as combined heat and power systems, enable waste-heat recovery for heating, cooling, dehumidification or process applications.
