Environment - Largest ethanol refinery east of the Mississippi?
"Largest ethanol refinery east of the Mississippi? Dunkirk might land an ethanol plant equal to one being called the biggest in the eastern U.S." is the headline to this Seth Slabaugh story in the Muncie Star-Press today. Some quotes:
DUNKIRK -- The potential ethanol refinery that The Andersons Inc. is seeking a permit for would be capable of producing up to 110 million gallons of the fuel a year, a company spokesman said Monday.For more, see this Feb. 16th ILB entry.
"We have filed an application for an air permit, but I can't tell you the size at this point," said Gary Smith, treasurer and vice president of finance for the Maumee, Ohio-based agribusiness. "My sense is, if the resources are strong enough, it would be 110 million gallons."
