Washington, DC – The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) today congratulates VeraSun Energy on celebrating the ribbon-cutting and open house at their newest facility in Albion, Nebraska.

Today’s celebrations reflect their continued commitment to help decrease America’s dangerous dependence on foreign oil from increasingly hostile sources.
The facility will add an estimated 168 new jobs and $31.7 million in new economic activity to the surrounding Albion community.
