Ethanol producers propose to use energy extracted from manure in a fluidized bed combustion process to generate steam for distillation of ethanol from grain and crop residues. One proposed steam plant will burn approximately 91,000 kg (100 tons) per hour, producing about 25,000 kg (28 tons) of ash per hour.
