Area ethanol plant set to break ground
Construction on an ethanol plant that promises to be good for the area will begin next week, and the directors of Quad County Corn Processors are excited about the new facility.
"We're very excited as there is a demand for this already," Quad County Corn Processor president Randy Hustedt said. "We are excited about this new venture which will be owned by local farmers and will add value to our local economy."
On Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. the Quad County Corn Processors will hold a groundbreaking for their new ethanol plant at the future plant site two miles south of Galva at the junction of highway 20 and M-25.
Patty Judge, the Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, will be present at the ground breaking on the Governor's behalf. The Galva Boosters will host a reception immediately after the groundbreaking at the Galva Legion Hall. The event will take place rain or shine.
The Directors of Quad County Corn Processors announce Monday that all of the shares have been sold and that the ethanol plant is officially closed to new investors. They thank everyone for investing and are extremely excited about this new venture.
Quad County Corn Processors have contracted with North Central to build the ethanol plant with construction to begin in the next couple of weeks. They will be constructing an 18 million gallon plant with a CO2 and dry ice processing plant adjacent to it.
