Panda Ethanol to Begin Construction on Manure Powered Refinery

This will be a 100 million gallon per year ethanol refinery -- the biggest yet of those refineries powered by methane from cattle manure instead of fossil fuels. -- Jeffrey Goettemoeller

Biofuels Journsl -- August 1, 2006
"The company will immediately begin facility construction on the 380-acre site and anticipates ethanol production to commence in the second half of 2007.
The first-of-its-kind facility will generate the steam used to manufacture ethanol by gasifying more than 1 billion pounds of cattle manure a year making it one of the most fuel efficient ethanol refineries in the nation."
