Andersons Marathon Ethanol, a partnership between The Andersons, Inc. and Marathon Petroleum Company, LP that produces ethanol, has entered into an agreement to supply CO2 created during the ethanol production process at their TAME plant in Greenville, Ohio, to Continental Carbonic Products, Inc. to create dry ice. Continental Carbonic Products is building a new 50,000-square-foot-dry ice manufacturing facility next to the TAME plant. Once the plant is online, it will employ 70 full-time employees.
“Continental Carbonic Products is a significant force in the U.S. dry ice market,” said Neill McKinstray, Vice President & General Manager of Ethanol for The Andersons. “We are pleased to have them join us at our Greenville ethanol plant, and look forward to advancing our common business interests, as well as contributing to the growth and prosperity of the Greenville area.”
The Andersons, Inc., which serves as operator and manager of the ethanol plant in Greenville, has a similar agreement with Continental Carbonic at The Andersons Albion Ethanol plant in Albion, Michigan.
“The Andersons Marathon Ethanol are exactly the type of high quality, high integrity strategic partner we look for when we expand our business,” said Robert Wiesemann II, CEO and Vice-Chairman of Continental Carbonic. “We have partnered with The Andersons for over four years in Albion, Michigan and our relationship has proven to be very beneficial to both parties. We also want to thank the Greenville community and State of Ohio Department of Development who have worked very hard to provide the economic framework to make this project successful and have welcomed us so warmly.”
