Abengoa to Announce US Cellulosic Ethanol Plant

Wichita Eagle. Abengoa Bioenergy will this month announce a $300 million ethanol project that will include its first US-based cellulosic ethanol production plant. The plant will be sited in Hugoton, Kansas.

The facility will have an 85 million gallon traditional corn ethanol plant and an up to 30 million gallon cellulosic ethanol plant, which will use corn stover, wheat straw, milo stubble, switchgrass, and other feedstocks.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a $76 million grant to help fund the project. Abengoa was one of six companies chosen for the grants to advance the cellulosic ethanol production. (Earlier post.)



DOE does good.
