Mead Opens Nation’s First Cow-Pie Ethanol Plant

‘Cow pies processed in a small Nebraska town may soon be helping to lower the price at the pump.

The Genesis plant near Mead is the first to combine a feed lot operation in its production of ethanol.

“The manure is used to produce bio gas,” said Brian Barber, of E-3 Biofuels.

That gas fires the boilers needed to make ethanol, and the bi-produced from that creates distiller’s grain that is then feed back to the cattle.

“This is truly a historic event,” said CEO Dennis Langley.

At a dedication ceremony on Thursday, Langley said his company’s patented closed-loop system is 12 times more efficient than any other fuel source in the world.’
