Dakota Ethanol Starts Up $44 Million Ethanol Plant in South Dakota

Dakota Ethanol LLC (Wentworth, S.D.) completed construction in August 2001 of a $44 million grassroots ethanol plant in Wentworth, South Dakota. The plant will produce 40 million gallons per year of Ethanol using approximately 40,000 bushels daily or 14.8 million bushels per year of corn as a feedstock. In addition, the plant will produce 120,000 tons per year of dried distillers grain for use as a livestock feed. Broin & Associates (Sioux Falls, S.D.) provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for the new plant that currently employs approximately 35 people.

Dakota Ethanol, jointly owned by Lake Area Corn Processors Cooperative (89%) and Broin & Associates (11%)and Lake Area Corn Processors Cooperative.

Calif. to delay MTBE phase-out

NEW YORK, Sept 27 - California Governor Gray Davis will most likely postpone banning the controversial gasoline additive MTBE from the state's fuel supply by one or two years, petroleum industry sources said on Friday.

Producers, traders and shippers of oxygen-enhancing MTBE, or methyl tertiary butyl ether, said California refiners were pushing for a two-year extension, but considered a one-year delay more likely.

``I believe it will be one or two years,'' said one industry source, saying the infrastructure does not currently exist to make the transition from MTBE to its alternative, ethanol.

California officials say they will announce a decision as early as next week on the fate of MTBE, a substance that was first used to help gasoline burn more cleanly, but which has come under attack for polluting groundwater.
