Ethanol Plant Wins Approval to Increase Output to 120 Million Gallons Annually

Nebraska [The McCook Daily Gazette] Red Willow County commissioners have approved a request that would allow a proposed ethanol plant at the Perry Elevator site west of McCook to increase its capacity from 40 million gallons a year to 120 million gallons a year. … The proposed plant, on 71 acres, won county zoning approval in 2003 to produce up to 40 million gallons of motor fuel grade ethanol a year. The larger capacity plant would expand onto an additional, adjacent 60 acres and would ultimately create approximately 45 direct and 150 indirect local jobs. … Darcy Eckhardt of McCook, director of the county’s zoning/planning commission, said planning commission members unanimously approved a recommendation to the county board.
