After more than three years of planning and construction, Highwater Ethanol in Lamberton, Minnesota is ready to open the doors and celebrate. The plant was officially announced on June 7, 2006 and began grinding corn last month.

The new 55 million gallon a year facility will hold its grand opening on September 11, the eighth anniversary of terrorist attacks on American soil which the Renewable Fuels Association notes are a “reminder of the threats posed to our nation every day, the bravery of our armed forces, and the vulnerability created by our heavy reliance on foreign sources of energy.”

Among the dignitaries scheduled to attend the event is Congressman Collin Peterson (D-MN), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.
