In its latest company newsletter, Ag Processing Inc. (AGP) revealed plans to incorporate a coal-fired energy center at its complex in Hastings, Neb. New boilers will produce steam for AGP's 52 MMgy ethanol plant, soybean processing plant and its newly expanded vegetable oil refinery. The project is subject to obtaining the necessary new construction permits and a long-term supply agreement with a local utility company.
