Planned Ethanol Plant Expected to Increase Shipping Numbers at SeMo Regional Port

AUGUST 22, 2006 - Posted at 4:18 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A planned ethanol plant and corn mill for the Southeast Missouri Regional Port Authority would more than double the annual tonnage shipped from the port, plus increase port revenue by approximately $150,000, according to a report in The Southeast Missourian newspaper.

The $200 million ethanol plant is a joint venture between SEMO Milling and Kansas-based Ethanex Energy North America, which designs and develops ethanol plants.

SEMO Millling is a corn mill that is expected to begin full production in December, and construction is expected to begin on the nearby 100 million-gallon-per-year ethanol plant by December 31.
