Potential Idaho ethanol plant on hold

By | August 01, 2002
A Pocatello, Idaho location for a proposed $50 million ethanol plant that would have employed 65 people has reportedly fallen through. An Idaho Falls-based company, Intrepid Technology & Resources Inc., had put a down payment on land for future development, but a feasibility study showed the property could not handle the increased transportation, according to the company's project manager. The company is considering alternative sites in Pocatello, but did not reveal locations. The plant would have been the first in a proposed series of ethanol operations in Idaho.
