Construction begins on Flint Hills Resources ethanol plant in Nebraska

August 20, 2017 |

In Nebraska, construction is starting on the Flint Hills Resources ethanol plant in Fairmont to install a new, bolt-on technology, called Maximized Stillage Co-Products. The $50 million project is one of the largest investments in co-product upgrading technologies ever made by a dry mill ethanol manufacturer.

Once operational, the MSC technology will allow the plant to produce a high protein animal and fish feed ingredient from a portion of its distiller grains, a coproduct of ethanol manufacturing. Construction is expected to last about 12 months and create about 120 construction jobs. The plant will remain in operation during construction.

The Flint Hills Resources Fairmont plant buys 44 million bushels of corn annually to produce 125 million gallons of ethanol, 320,000 tons of distillers grains and more than 26 million pounds of distillers corn oil. The plant employs about 50 people.
