Dayton Announces Grant for Brewster Ethanol Project

Minnesota Ag Connection Editors - 11/06/2002

Senator Mark Dayton announced that Generation II Ethanol, LLC in Brewster will receive a $250,000 federal grant to study a project which will help area corn producers tap into energy and other diversified markets. Dayton, who pushed for the money, said the grant is being awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Value Added Development Grant program.

The funds will be used to study the feasability of, and develop a business plan for, combining several goals of agriculture and national policy, which include developing new value-added agriculture products, increasing cash return to local farmers, reducing air pollution, and promoting greater energy self-sufficiency.

"Minnesota has long been a pioneer in developing alternative energy resources, and this project follows in that tradition," Dayton said. "Increased use of ethanol not only helps our environment, but benefits Minnesota farmers by raising demand for corn. The Generation II project holds great promise, so I'm pleased to see the federal government get behind it."

Dayton said the project's goal is to add value to corn, the primary ingredient in ethanol, by maximizing its use, thereby increasing revenue for Minnesota's corn farmers and producers.
