Ethanol plant bill advances
Tuesday, February 11, 2003
TRENTON -- The Assembly passed legislation Monday enabling the Delaware River and Bay Authority to take part in the construction of an ethanol plant in South Jersey.
The measure will provide the legislative approval necessary for the DRBA to become involved in a Renewable Energy and Agribusiness Park. The park will be located in Gloucester or Salem counties and would be the first of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Upon completion of a series of approvals, the DRBA is expected to provide funding for the pro-environment, pro-economic development project. Garden State Ethanol Inc., the company looking to build a facility in New Jersey, reportedly is moving to purchase the a 300-acre factory on Mantua Grove Road in West Deptford Township.
The proposed plant is reportedly expected to use 14.5 million bushels of corn and sorghum each year in a process that will produce 40 million gallons of ethanol, a gasoline additive.
Currently, there are 90,000 acres of corn in the state -- nearly 24,000 acres is located in the Third District, which includes Salem County and parts of Cumberland and Gloucester counties.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture estimates that an ethanol plant producing 100 million gallons annually would create a number of local jobs.
The measure passed 73 to 3 with one abstention. It now heads to the Senate for further consideration.
