BlueFire Ethanol to Build $130M Plant in Mecca

BlueFire Ethanol plans to begin construction on a new $130 million refinery to make fuel from waste in about a year, CEO Arnold Klann told Greentech Media.

The company still has to pin down financing for the plant in Mecca, Calif., near Palm Springs.
BlueFire expects the plant to begin turning woodchips, yard clippings and other usable garbage from landfills into ethanol in 2010, he said. The plant will be capable of producing up to 19 million gallons of ethanol per year from some 700 metric tons of greenwaste per day.
BlueFire’s 130-million project would be the second project for the company, which recently received a permit from Los Angeles County to build its first refinery close to a landfill near Landcaster.
