Plymouth energyA new ethanol plant in Merrill, Iowa celebrated its grand opening last week.

The Plymouth Energy plant has been operating at full capacity since last month and will produce 55 million gallons of ethanol a year using 18 million bushels of locally-grown corn.

The plant is located north of Sioux City in the northwest corner of Iowa and the company is hoping to start construction on a second plant in the same general area later this year.
