DADEVILLE (AP) — Plans were announced Friday to open Alabama's first ethanol plant in Dadeville.
The Alabama Renewable Energy Alliance, LLC said plans are under way to build a 55-million-gallon ethanol plant in the William T. Thweatt Industrial Park, a newspaper reported.
"After 100 years of depending on textiles to support our local economy it is very exciting to see a green economy business venture like this come into our area.," said T.C. Coley, chairman of the Tallapoosa County Commission. The $135 million plant is expected to be ready in the fall of 2008 and employ 40-50 people.
