Manure to fuel plant

September 20, 2005


A Dallas-based energy company announced Monday that it would build an ethanol plant in southwest Kansas that would be powered with cattle manure.

Panda Energy's $120 million ethanol plant - the third manure-fueled plant the firm has announced this year - would refine about 100 million gallons of ethanol from corn and milo that would be blended with gasoline to make fuel, the company said. The plant would use a billion pounds of cattle manure each year to power its operations.
