  • Webinar: Energy Efficient Grain Drying


Energy Efficient Grain Drying

Kenneth Hellevang, North Dakota State University

February 26, 2013



Using energy efficient grain drying methods in the North Central Region has the potential to annually save about 200 million gallons of LP gas and 100 million kWh of electricity, with a value of about $308 million. This is based on a conservative energy efficiency improvement of just 15%. Drying is the second largest energy input into the production of corn grain. The webinar will cover the types of grain dryers, energy conservation features of grain dryers and drying systems, and the expected energy consumption of various dryers and systems.
