Flint Hills Resources Fairmont Nears Completion of Major Construction

June 10, 2018 |

In Nebraska, major construction at the Flint Hills Resources Fairmont ethanol plant is nearly complete. The plant is installing an innovative technology called Maximized Stillage Co-Products (MSC), which was developed by Fluid Quip Process Technologies (FQPT) for the dry mill ethanol industry. MSC produces a high protein animal and fish feed ingredient from a portion of the distillers grains produced during the ethanol making process. Flint Hills is branding the new product as NexPro protein ingredient. The company expects to start up the new MSC technology later this summer.

The project is one of the largest investments in co-product upgrading technologies ever made by a dry mill ethanol manufacturer. Significant construction was required to install the MSC technology including the addition of a new building and two protein dryers. FQPT provided the MSC technology and the process engineering for the project and will also provide commissioning, startup support and training for the system.
