US EnviroFuels 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.
