NEDEK Ethanol receives fine

By | January 12, 2009
NEDAK Ethanol LLC, a 44 MMgy ethanol plant under construction near Atkinson, Neb., was fined $15,000 by the state of Nebraska for building an ethanol storage and load-out facility near the city of O'Neill without first receiving a construction permit from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. NEDAK Ethanol paid $5,000 of the $15,000 fine in November. The remaining $10,000, due within 12 months, may be waived if NEDAK Ethanol doesn't violate any provisions within the Nebraska Environmental Protection Act during that time.
