Panda Plans Another 100-Million Gallon Ethanol Plant Powered by Biogas

24 August 2005

Panda Energy, a division of the Panda Group, announced that it will build a 100-million gallon per year ethanol plant in Yuma, Colorado, fueled by renewable biogas generated from cattle manure.

This is Panda’s second such announcement this year. In May, it revealed plans for a similar plant in Hereford, Texas. (Earlier post.)

The $120 million facility will use corn as its ethanol feedstock.

To produce steam for operations, both the Yuma and Hereford facilities will utilize a renewable fuel technology that converts a billion pounds of cattle manure each year into biogas fuel. Each facility will save the equivalent of 1,000 barrels of oil per day, making these facilities the most energy efficient ethanol refineries in the United States, according to Panda.

What about that, Pimentel?

I want to know if I can run 100% ethanol in my truck right now with no modifications. it is a 1997 chevy s10 pickup with fuel injection. I've read all about how blends are fine and all that but I want to completely convert. If you can reply to me as soon as possible that would be awesome.
