VeraSun in Iowa

Cindy Zimmerman

Verasun Hartley, Iowa, has been selected as the site for VeraSun’s new 110-million-gallon-per-year ethanol production facility in northwestern Iowa. According to a company release, construction of the plant, planned to begin later this year, will take approximately 16 months. When completed, the plant will process more than 39 million bushels of corn annually and employ approximately 50 skilled workers. VeraSun expects to enter into contracts with ICM and Fagen, Inc. for engineering and construction services for the facility.
