VeraSun Energy will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house Thursday for its 110 million-gallon-per year biorefinery in Albion, Nebraska.
The plant began operation in October 2007 and VeraSun announced it would acquire the facility from ASAlliances in July 2007. The plant is one of 11 VeraSun ethanol production facilities currently in operation.
According to VeraSun officials, the ribbon cutting, which will be held at the Boone County Fairgrounds, “will focus on the power of partnership™, recognizing those who contributed to the success of project and are leaving a legacy of creating energy diversity and economic benefits for the communities of Boone County.”
Among those who will be on hand for the event are Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, VeraSun CEO Don Endres, Brian Jennings with the American Coalition for Ethanol, Todd Sneller of the Nebraska Ethanol Board and Randy Uhrmacher with the Nebraska Corn Growers Association.
