Growing Back to the Future
Renew Energy of Jefferson, WI is prepared to deliver high-value products to a fuel and feed-hungry marketplace.
In a society where nearly everything we touch is consumed and disposed of seemingly in a blink of an eye, its refreshing to hear of someone whose vision includes breathing new life and purpose into a century-old landmark.
Its even more exciting when that vision includes helping ease two of todays most pressing needs: fuel and food.
In an idyllic rural setting outside of Jefferson, WI, not far from Interstate 94 and situated between Madison and Milwaukee, the aptly named Renew Energy, has constructed a 130-million gallon/year, ethanol plant on the site of a former Cargill malting facility.
So, in a unique twist of fate, the remodeling of a facility originally dedicated to keeping breweries running for 100+ years, in favor of creating beer for ethanol production, makes perfect sense. Only now, its our nations thirst for fuel thats being quenched.
