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.
The largest of commercial grain bins can be brought down by ignoring the smallest of details, according to Rod Carpenter, senior partner at Clear Creek and Associates.

Currently, non-tariff trade barriers (NTTBs) are becoming the norm, as nations are willing to liberalize on paper, but not on the ground.
The U.S. grain industry has anticipated the completion of the Panama Canal expansion since the project was announced nearly a decade ago. It is a vital trade route for agricultural commodities shipped from the East Coast and the Mississippi River destined for Asia and western South American countries.
