The Missouri Corn Growers Association reports that a new ethanol plant is in the works for northeast Missouri.
Mississippi Valley BioEnergy, LLC (MVBE) announced that it plans to build a 100 million gallon per year dry mill production facility near West Quincy. MVBE recently signed a letter of intent with ICM, Inc. to provide services related to the design, construction and start-up of the proposed facility. The company has also retained BBI International as its consultant to assist with project formation and development.
Brent Rockhold, chairman of MVBE and former board member with Missouri Corn, believes the company is poised to make a positive impact on Missouri’s ethanol industry and economy of the tri-state region. “Our management and advisory committees reflect some of the most well-known, respected leaders in Missouri who bring diverse backgrounds and broad expertise,” he said.
