Ethanol facility powered by dairy waste planned

Bion Environmental Technologies and Fair Oaks Dairy Farms announced a joint venture that will enable the expansion of animal agriculture in concert with ethanol production.

Bion’s technology platform provides sufficient renewable energy from animal waste to produce ethanol absent any outside fuel source such as natural gas or coal, while directly addressing the growing long-term risk to distiller grains revenues as those markets become increasingly saturated by the continued expansion of United States ethanol production.

The integrated Bion platform incorporating ethanol production at Fair Oaks will be a balanced, closed-loop system that the company’s research indicates will create sufficient renewable energy to support one million gallons of ethanol for every 1,000 dairy cows.
