My fervent hope is that the congress will some day quit taking the goodies from the lobbyist and support the American people and treat ethanol like what it really is, TRASH, and we throw out trash.

"Refinery" is perhaps a poor choice of wording to describe or categorize this facility. It is a fermentation facility.

more fm article -

"Expected to be completed in mid-2014, the refinery will employ approximately 60 skilled workers and will contract with more than 500 local farmers in a 30-mile radius to gather, store and deliver more than 375,000 dry tons of stover per year into the Nevada facility.

DuPont will process the stover into ethanol.

Corn stover residues are a non-food feedstock that consists of corn stalks and leaves."

This is located in Nevada, Iowa.

Too bad you did not bother to read the article before commenting GT.... But what's a little more misinformation around here?

I was excited about a new refinery until I got to the part about ethanol. What a waste of food.

crep1291 not very often someone manages to double down on foolish post. 1. Corn left overs are distillers grain which is better cattle feed than ground corn. 2. Distillers grain can't be used for cellulosic ethanol. The corn stalk might be used but not grain.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Excellent. Those corn leftovers are just going to waste anyway. Might as well convert them to something useful.

Ethanol Refineries aren't what we need, more Oil Refineries is. If we had more Oil Refineries gas prices would be lower and on top of that Obama needs to approve construction of the new oil pipeline. Whats better than thousands of jobs which this country desperately needs right now to build a pipeline that will help bring in more oil and lower gas prices on people.

More stupid moves.

Ethanol is the problem, not the solution.
