Panda Plans a Third 100-Million Gallon Ethanol Plant Powered by Biogas

Haskell
Haskell County, Kansas

Panda Energy will build a $120-million, 100-million gallon ethanol plant in Haskell County, Kansas, fueled by renewable biogas generated from cattle manure. This is the third such plant Panda has announced this year. (Earlier post.)

In August, it revealed plans for a 100-million gallon,biogas-fueled plant in Colorado, and in May, one of the same size in Texas.

Together, these projects will use a total of three billion pounds of cattle manure a year as a renewable fuel. By gasifying the manure and using the resulting clean biogas as a fuel, each facility will save the equivalent of 1,000 barrels of oil per day.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Panda Energy is a privately held company that has built more than 9,000 MW of electric generation capacity at a cost of $5 billion. Panda is currently developing fuel ethanol plants, biomass electric generating facilities, biodiesel plants and is also actively working on next-generation clean coal projects.

Sorry, Haskell County. Estimated in population in 2004 = 4,272. This was a decrease of -.81% from the 2000 census.

Haskell County ranks No. 9 of US counties in production of cattle. (1997 Census of Agriculture)
