Ethanol Production Facility Fee

The cost to submit an air quality permit application for an ethanol production plant is $1,000. An annual renewal fee is also required for the duration of the air quality permit. The annual renewal fee includes an administrative fee of $1,000 and an emissions fee equaling $40 per ton of particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, volatile organic compounds, and hazardous air pollutants emitted during the previous calendar year. The annual fee must be paid to the South Dakota Department of Revenue and Regulation by July 31 following the year in which the permit is issued and annually thereafter.
