With Carlyle SynTec expanding its facility with a new 300,000 square foot warehouse and now the announcement by AENS
of a new ethanol facility, Greenville continues to expand its industrial base," said Alan Gaffner, Greenville mayor.
John Ward is one of a select few individuals in the world who has such a broad operations background in processing corn and bio-products," stated Mark Beemer, AENS president and CEO.
In August AENS announced plans to build ethanol plants in Central Iowa and in Kankakee, Ill.
AENS has optioned the entire 248-acre Kankakee Industrial Park next to a newly permitted regional sanitary landfill.
AENS also plans to build additional plants in the Midwest as well as the first cellulosic ethanol facility in the Eastern United States.
The large footprint will provide AENS great flexibility in plant design, allowing us to build significant rail infrastructure to accommodate the high-density Union Pacific mainline," said Beemer.
Due to the flexibility of the Union Pacific franchise, the ethanol can be shipped to a multitude of destination markets, allowing AENS ethanol and DDG market arbitrage opportunities.
