A Massachusetts company announced plans Monday, Aug. 12, to break ground for a cellulosic ethanol plant in the spring of 2020 at the Spiritwood Energy Park Association industrial park, reports AgWeek.

The announcement came in a press release from New Energy Blue that was sent to a number of economic development officials and the state commerce department but not to the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp., which is the majority owner of SEPA in partnership with Great River Energy.

Tom Corle, CEO of New Energy Blue, said the company had acquired the exclusive rights for the Americas to a bioconversion technology developed in Denmark that allows the conversion of wheat straw and corn stalks into low carbon ethanol for fuel. The technology is already in use at ethanol plants in Europe.

The company would like to break ground in second quarter 2020.
