I wasn’t able to attend last week’s informational meeting, and haven’t spoken to anyone who did. If any of our readers can provide a summary, please post a comment.
Apparently, Advanced BioEnergy, the company formed in 2005 which is interested in building a plant in this area, is merging with two South Dakota plants. Associated Press wire sources indicate that the company is planning a 100 million gallon plant for this area.
I’m still researching the issue, and haven’t decided if I believe this proposal is a net plus or net minus for the community when all the factors (economic, environmental, implications for transportation and quality of life, etc.) are weighed. Thoughts, anyone?
