The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) estimates that fuel ethanol reduced the retail cost of every gallon of gasoline sold in the United States by $0.89 in 2012.
Larson Engineering contributed to this significant financial benefit by providing structural engineering related services to more than 50 ethanol plants located throughout the Midwest. Larson also provided limited electrical, HVAC and piping design services for multiple ethanol facilities.
Additionally, JJ Rouman & Associates, a firm acquired by Larson in 2012, designed process, process mechanical and piping systems and provided structural engineering for greenfield plants with an additional capacity of 290 million gallons per year.
The combined experience of Larson and Rouman equates to a contribution of engineering services to over half of the ethanol plants built in the United States.
