Pacific Ethanol Inc, Fresno CA, plans to begin construction in about a month on a 50-million-gallon per year ethanol facility in Burley ID, mid-way between the fuel markets of Boise ID and Salt Lake City UT. Completion is expected within a year, the company said.
All wet distiller grain from the facility can be used for cattle feed, the company noted.
Located on 177 acres, the plant has access to Union Pacific rail service and is near Interstate 84. A fuel blending rack is within eight miles of the plant site. Pacific Ethanol also operates an ethanol plant in Madera County CA.
