    Here comes another one-third of a Billion gallons of corn ethanol

    Three new plants. 110 million gallons each. Add it up, and this announcement alone increceases America's ethanol production capacity by 7% over what was produced last year (4.9 billion gallons).

    Washington Group International Selected to Build Midwest Ethanol Plants
    BOISE, Idaho (Nov. 9, 2007) -- Washington Group International (NYSE: WNG) announced today it has been awarded cost-reimbursable contracts by E85 Inc. to build E85's first three ethanol production plants in the Midwest. The contracts together are valued at approximately $150 million.

    Washington Group will provide procurement, construction, commissioning, and start-up services for the facilities in Wahoo, Neb., and Red Oak and Council Bluffs, Iowa. Each of the facilities will be capable of producing 110 million gallons of ethanol per year. The corn-based ethanol will be blended with unleaded gasoline to create motor fuel, and the plant will produce commercially viable products in corn gluten feed and meal, corn germ, and wet and dry distiller grains with solubles.

    Now it'd be nice to see the switchgrass in the fields...

    I remember a short few years ago there was a big ethanol plant in Ashland Ky. ADM bought out the place and dismantled the whole thing. Now they're building new plants all over, go figure. Some things don't make sense.
