Cindy Zimmerman

According to a report, a northern Kansas energy broker is working to get a second ethanol plant in Harvey County.

Newton Area Chamber of Commerce officials say the North Central Energy Group of Morrowville has taken an 18-month option on land within the county.

The group plans to test the land’s water, then recruit investors for an ethanol plant if adequate water is available.

Harvey County officials in August approved the county’s first ethanol plant, which will be built southwest of Newton.
