Groundbreaking Saturday for ethanol plant

Mid-Missouri Energy, a farmer owned cooperative, has announced their groundbreaking ceremony for a 40 million gallon per year corn processing ethanol plant. The big event will take place at the construction site approximately one mile west of Malta Bend, on U.S. Highway 65 on Saturday, October 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. MME has announced the completion of the land purchase. Although the official ceremony marking this new phase of the project is scheduled for Saturday, dirt moving equipment is at the site and site work is underway.

Several ethanol industry dignitaries and elected officials plan to attend this official beginning of the third ethanol plant in Missouri. Ceremonies will get underway at 12:30 p.m. complete with shovels. Patty Kinder, Project Coodinator for the cooperative, encourages their 720 plus investors and others interested in the project to attend the special event and enjoy the lunch to be served at the site. "We started out as a group of farmer/producers in a true grassroots effort and we are still that, just a whole lot more of us," MME President Ryland Utlaut said.

The mid-Missouri effort for ethanol formed in early 2002, operating as a farmer steering committee from the three counties of Carroll, Lafayette and Saline, then as Mid-Missouri Energy. Early on, the site prospects seemed to be set on Carroll County, but when the dust cleared the Malta Bend community came out on top. The plant will provide 35 quality jobs for the area. The site preparation and construction period alone will provide a significant boost to the economy of the region. Utlaut reports the cooperative has awarded the dirt contract to Boedeker Construction from Malta Bend. Fagen, Inc. of Granite Falls, Minn., will do the design/build of the plant. ICM, Inc., of Colwich, Kan., will be the process engineer. The project will cost about $60 million. Plant start-up is anticipated to be March/April 2005.
