The Andersons, Inc
. and Marathon
announced Thursday they will soon start building
plant in Greenville, Ohio. The two companies announced
in mid-October they would work together to make ethanol but didn't say where. The Greenville plant will be able to produce 110 million gallons of ethanol a year, along with 350,000 tons of distillers dried grain, which is used in animal feed. The two companies received all necessary permits and zoning changes, and some tax abatements, this fall. In return, Greenville hopes the promise of 40 new jobs in the first quarter of 2008 is upheld. It's likely the plant will use corn or soybeans as biomass for the ethanol.
