The biorefinery will be VeraSun’s sixth facility and will increase the its annual production capacity to 670 million gallons upon completion. Currently, VeraSun has three biorefineries in operation and two additional facilities under construction.

Upon completion, tentatively scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2008, the plant will process about 39 million bushels of corn to produce 110 million gallons of ethanol and 350,000 tons of distillers grains annually.
