Andersons consider MI site for new ethanol plant.

Diversified agriculture interest The Andersons, Inc. recently announced it is considering building a 50-million-gallon-per-year ethanol production plant at its 77-acre Albion, MI grain facility. The site is one of several locations under consideration.

The Andersons said it is in discussions with federal, state and local agencies to determine the site's suitability, and expects to announce a decision sometime this year.

"The demand for ethanol is expected to increase from the 2002 level of 1.8 billion gallons to five billion gallons by 2012," said The Anderson's president and CEO Mike Anderson. "That type of growth would have a positive impact on area corn producers and the local economy."
