A New York-based ethanol company plans to build a second plant in California – its fifth currently in the works.

According to an AP report, economic development officials in California’s Kern County announced that U.S. Ethanol Holdings LLC plans to build a $200 million plant in Wasco with the capacity to produce 100 million gallons of ethanol per year.

U.S. Ethanol has four other plants under development in Indiana and Illinois. Construction on the Wasco plant is planned to begin later this year.
