US Bioenergy South Dakota-based US BioEnergy US BioEnergy Corporation is considering Guymon, Oklahoma as the location for a 100 million gallon per year ethanol plant.

According to a company release, US BioEnergy’s site location criteria include access to an abundant supply of corn, access to multiple modes of transportation for corn, ethanol and distillers grains, availability of a sufficient amount of water that is of suitable quality, availability of natural gas and other necessary utilities and infrastructure, and access to a qualified labor force.

Oklahoma currently has no ethanol plants in operation. Another plant is in the works for Enid, OK (see previous post).
