Company building facility in Nebraska to meet future cellulosic ethanol enzyme needs
For all of you people that gripe about the "cost" of ethanol, please note what a $100,000,000 investment in Nebraska's economy will do for job creation and tax revenue.
Novozymes to Build New $80-100M Ethanol Enzymes Production Facility in US
The new facility will be located on a 30-acre property at the Biorefinery Campus in Blair, Nebraska, approximately 25 miles north of Omaha. Novozymes expects to break ground in late 2008 with operations beginning in late 2010.
Initially the focus of the new plant will be to supply enzymes for corn based ethanol and enzymes for cellulosic ethanol start ups. The plant in Blair will be designed for later expansions to ensure Novozymes can meet demands for enzymes for cellulosic ethanol. We are undertaking an unprecedented effort to make these enzymes available by 2010.
