One of two Florida ethanol plants planned by U.S. EnviroFuels is not going to happen now.
The company had run into issues earlier this year in negotiating a lease agreement to construct a 40 million gallon a year plant at Port Manatee. Company officials say because those issues could not be resolved, they are cancelling plans for the plant.
However, they intend to move forward with a similar plant at the Port of Tampa, which would be the first ethanol plant to be built in Florida. The plant is reportedly on track to be completed in 2008.
