It’s Official – Green Plains Renewable Energy Aquires Ord Ethanol Plant

with one comment

Great news in Ord today – GPRE to Acquire Two Ethanol Plants In Nebraska. From the article (FTA):

These plants are in excellent locations. Within the 14 contiguous counties surrounding Ord and Central City, there are over 300,000 cattle on feed and approximately 300 million bushels of corn grown annually. This close proximity to large feedlot operations and vast corn supplies will reduce our energy and feedstock costs at these facilities. The Central City and Ord plants share the same process technology deployed at the majority of our plants, which should allow us to integrate them into our business with little disruption,” added Becker.

You can read more on the article here.  Congrats to all that were involved in making this process a reality.  This brings a nice positive change to the community!  Great work!!
