In Iowa, Little Sioux Corn Processors announced it will install Fluid Quip Technologies’ (FQT) patented Maximized Stillage Co-Products (MSC) system at its Marcus, Iowa, ethanol plant. This will be the 7th installation of this technology, worldwide, and the 3rd installation of the MSC system in Iowa. FQT currently has two other MSC installation projects ongoing, at the Flint Hills Resources (FHR) plant in Shell Rock, IA, and at the Green Plains Renewables (GPR) facility in Shenandoah, IA.
The MSC technology allows dry mill ethanol plants to separate 50% purity protein from the residual corn fiber, carbohydrates and oils that remain after the ethanol distillation process. The MSC 50% protein product trades in the high-value protein feed markets worldwide.
