Ethanol Plant Consideredin Weston County, Wyo.

By | August 01, 2003
South Dakota-based Western Biomass Fuels has proposed building an ethanol plant in Weston County in northeastern Wyoming, The Associated Press reported in a July 24 article.

The plant, possibly to be built near either Upton or Newcastle, would use wood thinned from the nearby Black Hills National Forest to make the alternative fuel. Ethanol is usually made with corn but can also be made with biomass, grasses and trees.

The Associated Press said the plant would cost $25 million to $30 million and would join just one ethanol plant currently in the state.
