Tall Corn Ethanol Plant Taking Shape in Iowa

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 9, 2002--Two shiny corn storage silos and a 112-foot tall dry distillers grain storage silo can be spotted from miles away on the Carroll county landscape as another ethanol plant begins to take shape in Iowa.

Tall Corn Ethanol Cooperative (Coon Rapids, Iowa) and joint venture operating partner TCE LLC are nearing the halfway point on completion of a $48 million ethanol plant that will convert some 14.8 million bushels per year of no. 2 yellow corn into 40 million gallons per year of fuel grade ethanol.

Due to mild winter conditions in Iowa and under the direction of leading ethanol plant constructor Broin & Associates (Sioux Falls, S.D.), the facility is on schedule for a September 2002 completion and start-up. Tall Corn will utilize a dry processing technology and some 120,000 tons per year of dry distillers grain by-product will be marketed as feed additives. The plant is located in west central Iowa in Coon Rapids, some 60 miles northwest of Des Moines.

The Cooperative, which consists of 450 producer and non-producer members, has invested $9.7 million in the project and is committed to delivering 4.85 million bushels of corn to the plant annually. Other area farmers and cooperatives will provide the remaining bushels of corn to reach the projected 14.8 million.
