IL Governor Signs MTBE Labeling Bill

Illinois Governor George Ryan (R) has signed legislation that requires any pump dispensing fuel containing at least 2% by volume MTBE to be labeled. The bill, HB 2909, takes effect immediately and station owners have 60 days to post the MTBE labels.

High Plains Signs Agreement to Sell Portales Facility

High Plains Corporation has announced that it has agreed to sell its ethanol production facility located in Portales, New Mexico to Natural Chem Industries, LLC, a New Mexico Limited Liability Company.

Terms of the sale were not disclosed at this time.

High Plains' President and CEO, Gary R. Smith, stated that, "Ownership of the Portales plant did not fit with our long-term vision for the Company. Internal strategic planning efforts have led us to focus on diversifying and improving our Colwich, Kansas and York, Nebraska facilities, where we have ongoing projects in areas other than just fuel grade ethanol. While fuel ethanol is still a core business for us, the feedstock and expansion opportunities in Portales were more limited. The industrial grade ethanol production at York and the anticipated glycerol project being considered for Colwich provide potentially higher returns for investors, and demand more of our attention."
