Ergon Biofuels to restart Mississippi ethanol plant in May

By Ergon Inc. | November 12, 2014

Ergon BioFuels LLC, a subsidiary of Ergon Inc., has announced plans to restart the ethanol facility in Vicksburg, Mississippi, beginning May 2015.

With nearly 60-million gallons of annual production capacity, Ergon BioFuels is one of the largest ethanol producers in the southeastern United States. Upon restart, the facility will purchase feedstock from local suppliers, providing substantial new market opportunities for the region. The plant will also add approximately thirty new high paying jobs to a community Ergon has operated in for decades.

Craig Busbea, General Manager for Ergon BioFuels says, “Bringing the ethanol facility back online is an exciting development for Ergon. It will restart with state-of-the-art technology that not only increases ethanol yield and improves the dried distillers’ grain, but also allows for the production of corn oil. We look forward to providing jobs for our community and the economic stimulus it will bring to our state.”
