Ethanol continues its impressive expansion throughout the United States, with construction of a new 35-million-gallons-a-year production plant in Port of Morrow, Oregon recently announced
by Pacific Ethanol, Inc. Pacific Ethanol, whose mission is to "become the West Coast's leading marketer and producer of renewable fuels", will start construction of the plant in about 30 days and expects to start churning out ethanol
a year later. The plant is one of five the company plans on operating in the West by the end of 2008. Pacific Ethanol was founded in 2003 and is currently building an ethanol plant in Madera County, CA. The company's website
has a slideshow of that plant's construction.
