Developers Plan Crop Waste Ethanol Plant in North Dakota
(Associated Press/The Washington Times) A group of developers is planning to make ethanol from the stalks and leaves of North Dakota wheat straw and corn plants.
New Energy Investors is looking to develop a 13-million gallon, cellulosic ethanol plant at the Spiritwood Industrial Park near Jamestown, the Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/2aEyvYB) reported.
The company is asking the North Dakota Agricultural Products Utilization Commission for $125,000 for a three-month feasibility study. Corle said the study would be to reassure potential investors.
The company plans to get its feedstock from a 50-mile radius that stretches west to Tappen, south to Edgeley, north to Carrington and east to Buffalo.
