US BioEnergy hopes to hit a home run with new ethanol plant

US BioEnergy Corporation announced that it has obtained options on land near Dyersville, Iowa, where it plans to construct a 100-million-gallon-per-year (mgy) ethanol facility adjacent to the CN Railway. The deal is contingent on zoning, permitting, tax incentives and financing.

Keith Rahe, Executive Director of Dyersville Industries, stated, "We are extremely excited about US BioEnergy's proposed site near Dyersville and the possibilities that this brings to our community. We have been working on this for about three months and we're confident that US BioEnergy will be a good neighbor and we look forward to welcoming them to the community." Dyersville gained notariety as the location in the movie, "Field of Dreams."

Similar to the US BioEnergy plant being constructed in Albert City, Iowa, the proposed plant near Dyersville will be a 100-mgy, natural-gas-fired, dry-grind ethanol facility. A plant of this size typically consumes 37 million bushels of corn and produces 320,000 tons of dried distillers grains annually. Once operational, this type of facility would likely employ over 40 people. US BioEnergy Corporation is based in Brookings, South Dakota.
