The Panda Group has announced that it will be building a 100-million-gallon-per-year fuel ethanol plant in Hereford, Texas.

    The Hereford plant is expected to be the most energy efficient fuel ethanol facility in the US. Instead of using natural gas in its boilers, the plant will utilize technology that converts cattle manure and cotton gin waste into clean burning biogas to power the plant, realizing an energy savings equivalent to 1,000 barrels of oil per day. The use of cattle manure as a fuel to make steam for the facility will benefit local feedlots.

    The plant will refine US grown corn and milo into a clean burning auto fuel that will replace the equivalent of 2.4 million barrels of imported gasoline per year. The $120 million project will break ground this summer and become operational in late 2006.
