Marathon Oil, The Andersons team up for ethanol plant

Marathon Oil, no stranger to the biofuels market, is partnering up with The Andersons, Inc. to build ethanol plants (well, at least one). Marathon wants to be able to "maintain the reliability of future ethanol supplies" and The Andersons, which will actually run the plant, gets a market for some of its product and access to Marathon's money and clout. Where this new plant will be built has not been decided, but your typical biofuel plant considerations are coming into play, namely infrastructure and access to biomass. A decision on the plant's location will be made "soon".
