Summit Ag Group breaks ground on $115M corn ethanol plant in Brazil
. . . The production facility is being built in Lucas do Rio Verde in Mato Grosso, an agricultural state in west central Brazil and the country’s largest producer of corn and soybeans.
Summit CEO Bruce Rastetter estimated that the plant, which will be the only dedicated corn ethanol plant in Brazil, will be completed in mid-2017. When fully operational it will produce 60 million gallons of ethanol annually for domestic markets.
In addition to helping to meet the country’s increasing demand for domestic ethanol, which can’t be met by the existing sugarcane ethanol production, the new corn ethanol production facility will introduce to the region valuable high fiber and high protein co-products, which will serve as high-value feed for the Brazilian livestock industry. . . .
