BioEnergy Incorporated to build plant in Manitoba

By | June 01, 2002
Canadian BioEnergy Incorporated,a Manitoba firm, is set to begin building a (U.S.) $17.87 million ethanol plant in Manitoba in 2003. The company has decided to construct the operation in response to a growing U.S. demand for ethanol as a component of fuel. If the plan goes ahead, a total of 22.5 million liters of ethanol would be produced at the new plant, all of which would be exported from Canada to the U.S., a company official said. The ethanol would be derived from wheat, which would significantly benefit wheat farmers in the area who have been attempting to launch an ethanol project for eight years.
