The Chicago Tribune is reporting today that the Australian company Global Ethanol Holding, Pty. Ltd. which owns Northern Illinois Ethanol LLC, is planning on building the $100 million plant if a presentation goes well at next Tuesday's meeting at Joliet City Hall. The ethanol facility will employ about 45 workers and will take about a year to a year-and-a-half to build. A company official made sure to mention that the plant's Midwest location means it'll be east to get local farmer's corn to the plant.
