Flint Hills Resources Begins Construction on FQPT MSC Protein System

Fairmont, NE - Construction is now underway at the Flint Hills Resources ethanol plant in Fairmont, Nebraska to install Fluid Quip Process Technologies’ patented bolt-on protein technology called Maximized Stillage Co-Products (MSC)™.

The MSC system produces a high protein animal and fish feed ingredient from a portion of distiller grains, a coproduct of ethanol manufacturing. The $50 million project is one of the largest investments in co-product upgrading technologies ever made by a dry mill ethanol manufacturer and marks the fourth MSC installation globally.

“The technology provides an exciting new platform for Flint Hills Resources to compete in the alternative protein feed ingredient market,” said Kevin Karasiuk, plant manager at Flint Hills Resources Fairmont.

Fluid Quip Process Technologies (FQPT) completes 10th successful feeding trial with Still Pro 50™

Dr. Carl Parsons from the University of Illinois presented nutritional value of FQPT’s 50% purity protein product at the Minnesota Nutrition Conference last month. The product is produced with FQPT’s patented Maximized Stillage Co-Products (MSC)™ system. The MSC system has been in full-scale operation since 2009. Currently 2 ethanol facilities in the US and 1 facility in Brazil produce the high-value protein product with 1 plant under construction and 2 in engineering in the US. “Still Pro 50 is truly differentiated from corn and DDGS related products,” says Neal Jakel, VP Strategy and Technology for FQPT. “It falls within the AAFCO definition of Grains Distillers Yeast showing its value in the high value alternative protein market. It’s a specialty protein feed ingredient,” Jakel adds.

The recent trials add to the extensive portfolio of nutritional data FQPT has collected for the past 8 years in production and companion animal feed trials and commercial feeding operations. “Once you get to the 50% protein content range together with high yeast concentration, the product value increases exponentially over DDGS as well as Hi-Pro DDGS products in the low 40% protein range,” says Dr. Peter E.V. Williams, Chief Resident Nutritionist, FQPT. “It takes many years of work to get a new protein product into the marketplace and achieve high-values for it. FQPT’s years of production and technical development work in this space are showing the benefit in value to the producers,” adds Williams.

Feedstuffs® Magazine’s article by Dr. William A. Dudley-Cash discusses trial results and the product trading favorably to high-protein soybean meal within the poultry market.

Still Pro 50 has shown its value at more than 3x the DDGS price for years. FQPT and marketing partners have additional feeding trials underway to continue to demonstrate the value of the product across multiple species and rations.
