The parent company of two North Dakota ethanol plants that depend in part on the operation of Coal Creek Station is evaluating future changes to the plants in light of that facility’s planned closure, reports The Bismarck Tribune.

Midwest AgEnergy Group operates Blue Flint, which uses steam and water from Coal Creek next door in McLean County.

Near Jamestown, the company runs Dakota Spirit next to Spiritwood Station, a power plant fueled by both natural gas and coal processed at Coal Creek.

Last week, Great River Energy announced that it will close Coal Creek in 2022 and convert Spiritwood to run entirely on natural gas.
