American EthanolWhile we’re on the subject of new ethanol facilities how about American Ethanol? According to their website they’re planning to build and build and build . . .

American Ethanol plans to develop more than two billion gallons of annual ethanol production capacity to address America’s growing renewable and high-octane fuel requirements. Ethanol reduces dependence on foreign energy sources in an environmentally responsible manner. The company plans to build fifteen ethanol plants and to invest in the expansion of a plant that is currently operating in Iowa.
