Northern Ethanol to build Niagara Falls ethanol plant

By | October 06, 2008
Northern Ethanol LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Toronto-based Northern Ethanol Inc., has formed an agreement with Connecticut-based Praxair Inc. to acquire 70 acres for a hydropowered ethanol production facility to be built in Niagara Falls, N.Y. The New York Power Authority approved the 9,000-kilowatt project in May. The 108 MMgy ethanol facility is expected to break ground during the second quarter of 2009 and will take approximately 20 months to construct. At press time, the project was waiting to be accepted into the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program before continuing to move forward.
