By Holly Jessen | March 10, 2011

Ineos New Planet BioEnergy, a joint venture between Ineos Bio and New Planet Energy, broke ground on its waste-to-fuel commercial plant Feb. 9 in Vero Beach, Fla., with local dignitaries on hand for the ceremonies. The $130 million Indian River BioEnergy Center will produce 8 MMgy ethanol as well as renewable power from local yard, vegetative and household wastes by mid-2012.

The plant will provide 205 direct and indirect jobs as well as 175 construction jobs during the next two years.
