Moran Gets Pratt Energy Ethanol Plant Tour

by Gale Rose (Pratt Tribune)  Sen. Jerry Moran got a personal tour of the Pratt Energy Ethanol Plant Dec. 29. He visited with several plant workers that explained each step of producing ethanol.

When U.S. Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas paid his second visit to the Pratt Energy Ethanol Plant, the facility was much different than his first visit when the plant was under construction.

Mog said Pratt Energy has a capacity of 55 million gallons of ethanol a year but can reach 57 million. The plant is currently running on 100 percent corn but can also switch to sorghum. The plant is high efficiency and reuses it’s steam 3.5 time with zero water discharge.

They produce 90 percent of their own electricity. 

The plant also produces corn oil that goes to feed lots and is looking at producing bio diesel, Slater said.

Moran said they have been knocking at the Environmental Protection Agency’s door for a long time to get changes that will help increase the use of ethanol.

Mog said the future of ethanol should be strong because it’s hard to find a better octane replacement than ethanol.  READ MORE
